This week I went to Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota with a couple of friends to check out the the Marc Chagall special exhibit “Flowers, and the French Riviera: The Color of Dreams”. The exhibit in the Conservatory was amazing with an abundance of flowers, 4 transparent stained glass partitions and several constructed walls of houses complete with doors, windows and window boxes overflowing with fresh flowers. I’m trying to decide what remaining themes I have that could be used to showcase the exhibit.
I did however spot an unusual door mat of all things when coming out of the Payne Mansion after viewing a display of the history of Marc Chagall. The mat has many missing pieces that reveals the likeness of a dog. You never know when you will spot something that will fulfill a weekly theme!
