Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity

Knoxville’s Dogwood Arts Festival brings entertainment, food, activities and parties during the more than two-week span of time of celebration.  But the Open Gardens event offers visitors a bit of serenity as they quietly roam some of the area’s most stunning gardens.

Sometimes you just take a look at dogwoods, tulips, and flowering shrubs.  Sometimes you take pictures.  And sometimes you just sit and reflect.

During this cold winter weather, we’re longing for a bit of serenity.  We’d love to sit in someone else’s garden and ponder what it would be like to look out at the view of the moment in a serene setting.
