May 27.  The Florida Whispering Giant called "Tiki."   This sculpture is #44 on the list provided for this category and is one of three sculptures listed for the state of Florida on the "Peter Wolf Toth's Trail of Whispering Giants" list. It is not listed on the Smithsonian Institution's Artist Inventory. It is located in DC Alexander Park in Fort Lauderdale, FL. There is no plaque or sign near the statue other than the plaque up the street that names the park. He is facing east so he can watch the sun rise over the ocean every morning.  This 30-foot sculpture honors the Seminoles and other Indian tribes finished in May 1983, located on scenic Route A1A in Alexander Park is dedicated with Seminole Indians (named) - Monument out of cypress wood. The Trail of the Whispering Giants is a collection of sculptures by Hungarian-born artist Peter Wolf Toth.The sculptures range in height from 20 to 40 feet (6.1 to 12.2 m), and are between 8 and 10 feet (2.4 and 3.0 m) in diameter. Currently there are 74 Whispering Giants, with at least one in each of the 50 U.S. states, as well as in Ontario and Manitoba, Canada, and one in Hungary. In 1988, Toth completed his goal of placing at least one statue in each of the 50 states, by carving one in Hawaii, and in 2008, he created his first Whispering Giant in Europe, Stephen I of Hungary in Délegyháza, Hungary along the Danube River.

May 27 - Circumstances did not allow the time for me to get online later in the day but I will try to catch up with everyone today.
05/27/15:  There is nothing more serene than seeing birds on foggy water like this in the quietness of the early morning.  So peaceful.
Bird of Paradise ( strelitzia juncea)   This Bird is quite different than the other species as the flowers are perched upon a long reed-like stem that has no significant leaves. although the blossoms are the same color as reginae, it is a different species. Growing up to 6 feet tall, this plant likes both full sun and part shade.http://www.georgiavines.com/Seeds/birdofparadiseseeds/birdofparadiseseeds-s-.html  Los Angeles Arboretum Arcadia, CA  Thanks for viewing and commenting, much appreciated!

3-06: I was in a precarious position while taking this shot so I didn't get it framed quite the way I wanted. This is the keyhole in the Devils Backbone. You can see where it is in the picture I posted for 3-02. My nerve is not what it used to be.
May 22, 2012    What the heck is this?      Many of you will guess, but some may not.    Let me say that first of all - I had pre-loaded this photo for my potd a week or so ago.  However, I got sidetracked while working on it & failed to hide it.  So it was "unveiled" a little early, and got a few comments ahead of time - which I really appreciate.      So here it is again today for it's "second" unveiling.  :-))    Give up on guessing what this is?      It's a close up shot as my husband Bill is welding a piece of metal to another metal thingy (that's a technical term) in our home workshop.      As mentioned on yesterday's potd - he gets so "in the groove" of doing whatever in his workshop that oftentimes he doesn't know that I've come in and am taking photos.      He did know I was taking this shot, and we had a good time trying to get the shot just right because the glow from the welder was tricking the camera's sensor.    I rather liked this one as it seems almost "other worldly" in it's appearance.  Check it out in X2 or X3 - it's pretty cool.    Thanks to everyone for you wonderful and fun comments on the photo I posted yesterday of Bill making sparks in the workshop!    Have an out-of-this-world sort of day today my friends!    Linda

January 30....  Yesterday's cat lives in this old house. The cat is still there, but after the photo-session I knocked on the door and the cat was let in.
June 4, 2012  "All we need, really, is a change from a near frigid to a tropical attitude of mind."  ~ Marjory Stoneman Douglas  I haven't had much time (none almost) to take new photos lately, so I had to dip back into some of those that are "still in the can" to get this post for today.  And, you'll likely see more in the coming days.    I believe that this is a Dracaena plant.  Help me out here PapaMugger.........  Anyway, it was a beautiful plant.  I've seen them before in the U.S. but the were smaller, potted plants.  This one was in front of one of the city buildings in Nassau, Bahamas and it was like a small tree.  I love the slender, colorful leaves.  Yes, I'm woefully behind on possessing the photos from our trip to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.  But rest assured, I'm working on them a little bit at a time.  "-))  Frame created in PicMonkey.   I'm headed out for another week of travel in the Valley of Texas.  It will be a long, hard, hot and likely dusty week.  I'll do my best to comment in the evenings.  You guys are fantastic, and I learn so much from your work.  Have a 'colorful' day today my friends, and a wonderful week.  Linda

Busy day ahead. The 6th graders have been learning about the Middle Ages and they are having a Renaissance Faire today. I am doing a foto booth. It should be a lot of fun. I will be away for most of the day and may not get back to comment.

Yesterday was hectic and I was exhausted long before we ate our late dinner. I'm sorry that I was not around to comment on all of your images.
