School of Discovery

School is out for summer, but the grounds of the School of Discovery are like an oasis downtown. I love the courtyard atmosphere and how the building is framed by the trees. Enclosed on the left is the butterfly garden, and enclosed on the right are picnic tables and benches. The school is also the site of the Pickard Auditorium, which provides a stage and seating for large community events such as Tale-Telling Festival and Junior Miss.

How lovely to have a place like this to retreat to. Wish my city had a nice place too.

School isn't out up here until the end of June.

That's a so-very-southern building and garden. I would love to visit there.

I wonder if your foxgloves came back. The are biennials, you know. Maybe you were gone from that spot before they returned.

The whole scene you photographed looks inviting and cool to me. I like your photo.
