Photo of the Day: Bishop’s Garden, Chautauqua

As longtime readers of this blog know, I’ve visited the Chautauqua Institution in upstate New York at least a half dozen times over the past two decades. Yet this year, perhaps because I sought somewhat different subjects for my camera, I came across this peaceful spot, at the corner of Peck and South Lake Drive. “Bishop’s Garden” commemorates one of the two co-founders of this example of Americana, Bishop John H. Vincent. Within a community that calls you away from a life of toil and haste, this is an oasis of even greater stillness, repose and peace.
