Unidentified garden in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, 1930, photographer unknown, via Archives of American Gardens, Smithsonian Institution Commons on flickr.
Thence thro’ the garden I was drawn—
A realm of pleasance, many a mound,
And many a shadow-chequer’d lawn. . . .
— Alfred, Lord Tennyson, from “Recollections of the Arabian Nights“

It looks so tranquil. :o)
It really does. It’s wonderful how one can create a nice garden room with just two chairs and some shade (fancy birdbath optional).
