Palm Court

Huge palm trees seem to be beckoning visitors in to this lovely garden courtyard in Brunswick, Georgia. This garden square was originally designed and built in the late 1800's to provide a gathering spot for a growing city. Even though it has been restored in recent years, It has an old feel to it. I can't help imagining church picnics, ice cream socials, and the bandstand music of another era that took place on these grounds. 

In May, I did a painting demonstration at the Anderson Gallery of another view in this same garden. See process notes of that demo by clicking HERE.

Beautiful Laurel,

I love your thoughts of imagining picnics there.
