Arboretum Terrace

I met one of the paint-out groups at the local Arboretum last week.  I've painted there quite a few times now but of course there are many many views for artists to paint.  On my previous visit I painted this watercolor,  Green Umbrellas.  On that visit I didn't have much time to spend on my painting.  I had more time last week but didn't venture into the various gardens.  This bright terrace shaded by a huge tree caught my eye.  The terrace overlooks the main lawn and fountains, with an amphitheater on one side.  The craftsman style corner lantern is a perfect addition.  Unfortunately there were too many ants bothering me!

Peacocks always hang around the cafe.
