Those capital letters in the title aren’t a mistake.  “The Dream Garden” is the name of a Tiffany masterpiece of a Maxfield Parrish masterpiece found in the historic part of Philadelphia.  We were walking along, stopping very often so I could take shots of doors, when my daughter said she thought this was the building that had something in it I’d like.  She was right about both suppositions!  (Not sure why I didn’t think to use the panorama feature on my iPhone, but I didn’t.)

Although this looks like a painting, it’s really a mosaic based on Parrish’s painting and it’s amazingly beautiful.  The mosaic is located in the Curtis Building, former headquarters of The Saturday Evening Post, and is close to Independence Hall, making it easy to visit.
