Peacock Park...

Another Sunday morning stroll while Noah was at Sunday school. The weather has been glorious lately and it was as well today. A little cooler - around 60 - but sunny and pleasant. We walked to a park near St. Thomas church that I had stumbled upon earlier. It is Vojanovy Sady and is about as big as a square city block. Fodos says of the park "the Vojan Gardens originally formed part of the Archbishop's Palace before becoming the property of the monastery attached to nearby St. Joseph's church. Hidden behind high walls, they form a peaceful retreat from the surrounding bussle." There is only one gate to get in and out and there are several peacocks wandering about. There are also two old chapels on the grounds. Here are some pictures.

Here is one of the two old chapels on the grounds. Notice the trees growing out of the walls of the chapel.

Here is a sign in the shape of a peacock for a hotel located just outside the gate of the park...
