On the west side of the Domestic Arts Building is an enclosed garden with several water features, thus its name, "The Water Garden." It consists of several "rooms" divided by partial walls. One of my favorite places to sit is on the bench under a large maple tree. So I'm starting the images with that bench and its views. And then moving to another bench with its different views. Update: Unfortunately, the big beautiful old maple tree had to be cut down - I think it was in 2014. So now there's no shady relief from the broiling summer sun.
