Orange seed pods

Being I am still pretty new to the Florida climate I sometimes run into a plant that strikes me as unusual. Doing a bit of research, courtesy of Google, the plant seems to be Coontie Cycad Zamia and it is poisonous. It is interesting that I found it outside our local hospital. I guess incase you ingest the seeds, at least medical help it is closeby.

Merry Christmas

Posting a photo of a Christmas decoration has been a tradition on this blog for many years. This years "sleeping santa" has a special meaning to me as it was a gift to my mom from me and my brother over 50 years ago. We bought the santa at a downtown department store with our saved allowance money, probably for about a dollar.

Mom is now gone, and recently so too has my brother left this world.

Christmas is a holiday that is steeped in nostalgia and this little decoration surely is a good example.

Reflection on the floor

For some reason I noticed the reflections on the floor and that along with the walls, light and art compelled me to photograph the composition. Not sure anyone else would find it interesting but I am posting anyway.

Not to detract from graphics, the two framed artworks are by Denise Green, an Australian born artist.
