This little blue house sits at the edge of the
gardens next to the parking lot.
They use it for story-time for kids and sometimes
to sell local artist crafts.
Peacock sculpture in the pond was donated
by the widow of the museum founder, an artist
in her own right.
The turtles were skittish, watching us behind them,
and diving into the pond if we moved in front of them.
I see a frowning face above the dark spot on the tree.
The gazebo is a favorite place for weddings, but
I'd advise against holding them in the summer
unless you especially like public steam baths.
(hot and no breeze.)
A waterfall not far from the museum building.
Benches provided here and throughout the garden
for peaceful contemplation.
