The Ringling, Sarasota Florida, Circus and a Whole Lot More, The Statuary

Copyright 2014, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

John and Mable Ringling made trips to Europe while building their home and gardens in Sarasota Florida.  They brought back a number of statues. The statuary is spread around the grounds, tucked in here and there, whimsical, delightful.

The banyon trees and the house in the background, what an entrance, eh?

And, tucked in a cove formed by the banyon trees:

This might be my favorite post you have done on the Ringling compound. Maybe because it showed so much lovely outdoor scenery?? (I'm currently starved for the sight of greenery! lol) Or maybe because the whimsical always tickles my funny bone???

But then I did really like the miniature circus as well. Hmmm.

Okay, I have enjoyed this whole collection! Thanks for taking us along.

Glad you enjoyed it Lynne!

It was a great day, way more than we had anticipated.
