Favorite Statue


Probably my favorite statue in the Sunken Garden in the Margery McNeely Conservatory in Como Park. This is the third time she has appeared on my blog, in different seasons with different flowers. Go here and here for different perspectives of this lovely female.

Linking to ABC WEDNESDAY

  2. This is very nice. I think you have more sculptures up north than we do down here. We are more simple folk, ya know.

    I didn't know you were a Vietnam vet...what did you do there? And re the sculpture (?) in Cedar Key: We haven't been to Cedar Key for a while, but there is a nice "garden" in which you can find a variety of art projects created by locals. The last I saw it, however, things were getting a bit run-down. We'll probably go back soon and put up some more current photos.

  4. Well, it read to me like you were a Vietnam vet! :) And when I taught American history I brought in Vietnam vets to talk to the kids and we had several women - nurses who lived through the worst of it. I didn't think you were a nurse, but I know that you are multi-talented, so I figured it was possible! :)

  6. That is a beautiful statue.

    In reference to you being a vet....Maybe it was that uniform we both wore back in the sixties :)

  14. I can see why you'd post multiples of this lovely sculpture. I wonder how she might look in snow. (Cold, I'll bet.)

    (Still chuckling over your vet status.)
