When I saw that the themes for the two separate Saturday Photohunts were Joy and Circular, I thought of someplace that it's a joy for me to explore which has circular details like the happy faces on the sculpture below.
All of these shots were taken at the North Carolina Botanical Garden at UNC in Chapel Hill NC.
Looking through my photo archives I picked shots spanning a four year period.
The shot above and below were taken a year apart. The cat must belong to someone who works there since I spotted him outside the same circular area a year apart.
In case you think a cat can be trained to stay out of the rest of the garden, on another visit I spotted the cat jumping into one of the planters for a little joy away from the circle.
It's hard not to feel joy when looking at the sculpture below. I think his crown is somewhat circular.
I find it a joy to spot the circular reflection in the water below.
For a chess playing gardener the set below would be a joy and I spot some circular tables as well as the pieces having circular bottoms.
