Palm Frond



No series of Florida photographs would be complete without that of a Palm Frond. The sunlight filtering through provided attractive highlights on this particular leaf. I captured this shot at Hollis Gardens which is located in Lakeland beside Lake Mirror.

I jokingly refer to Lake Mirror as the “cement pond” (an inside joke for those old enough to remember the Beverly Hillbillies). Lake Mirror is a small lake surrounded on three sides by a concrete wall & walkway and on all sides by city.

VERY GOOD DESCRIPTION OF MIRROR LAKE. ALTHOUGH LAKE HOLLINGSWORTH WAS ALWAYS OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO GO, I REMEMBER THIS LAKE VERY WELL FROM MY APPROX.3 YEARS LIVING IN LAKELAND IT IS WHERE I PROPOSED TO MY GIRLFRIEND AND NOW WIFE MARLO. MAY 28TH, 2008 MARKS OUR 20TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY.

I think that post above "See Please Here" is a virus, so for heaven's sake delete it.
