Outside this morning, there was a bright orb in the sky....what was it? I remember now, the SUN. For those of you that haven't seen it yet, it is coming your way I promise. Spring is only 38 days, 18 hours, 5 minutes and 42 seconds away... or thereabout. Not that I'm counting.
Grabbed a camera and the keys and headed over to Washington Oaks Gardens State Park; the former winter estate of Owen D. Young of NY. Young was Chairman of General Electric and founder and Chairman of RCA. He also served as a diplomat and was Time Magazine's Man of the Year in 1929. The estate was a wedding gift to his wife. Just before her death in 1965, Washington Oaks was donated to the State of Florida with the specification that the gardens be maintained for public enjoyment.
There was not much blooming in the formal gardens yet, but the weather was beautiful and it just felt great to be out in the sun again!
