Greetings from Florida, where I'll be keeping warm this week. Posting will be suspended while I'm away, but I wanted to poke my head in quickly to recommend the Ringling Museum and grounds, if you ever find yourself in Sarasota. John and Mable Ringling's mansion, Ca d'Zan, is a splendid neo-Venetian marvel, both Circus Museums are fascinating, and the Ringling Museum of Art is filled with an impressive collection, from antiquity to the modern age. The property alone is worth the trip, filled with banyan trees, flowers, and my personal favorite, the Dwarf Garden. Would love to come back here again.
Have a great week, all.
