Scenes From A Bench...Chanticleer Gardens

At least once a week I find myself in a botanical garden, arboretum or nature trail.  I've always been fascinated by the placement of a bench.  Was it placed there for someone to rest on their journey?  Is it strategically placed to give you an intended view?

I'm still trying to figure that out.

Welcome to my Scenes From A Bench series.  On each of my adventures I am going to attempt to solve the mystery.

Welcome to the view of Chanticleer Gardens
