Photohunters: Quirky Peace and Tranquility


When looking at the two photohunters themes: What is Peace and Tranquility to You? and Quirky, I immediately thought of the peace and tranquility I find in botanical gardens as well as the quirky art they sometimes have.

These shots were taken at the NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill, NC.

I used to always try to go there for peace and tranquility after my appointments at the UNC Cancer Center.

The botanical garden is across the road from the entrance into the UNC medical campus so it is very convenient.

I love this quirky seat shown above and below.

I fell in love with your Botanical Gardens. I find the quirky art amusing. Can visitors take a seat on the quirky chair?

Thanks to everyone for visiting. Yes, you can sit on the chair. I've even tried it.

You always do the combo hunts beautifully, but I think this one tops them all. For me too, your Garden would be the perfect place to find peace and tranquility and great place to laugh (an important part of any recovery or health maintenance program.. or of life itself.)

I love visiting Botanical Gardens and wish I could visit yours....thanks always for sharing it.
