All Four Art and Art for One

A dynamically curling handrail duels with its more mobile shadow in the Four Arts Garden in Palm Beach. Four Arts (art, drama, lit-tra-ture, and music) was begun in 1938 by the Garden Club of Palm Beach. Designed by seven society ladies and a dude, they include a Chinese Garden, Moonlight Garden, Aroid Garden (monocotyledonous flowering plant family defined by having an inflorescence comprised of a rod-like spadix, which is surrounded by a large petal-like bract, the spathe) and others. 

As usual, nature for me takes a back seat to the pleasing creations of humans (also nature?), but it is a most excellent back seat.
