95% of the Caladium bulbs in the world come from Lake Placid - this mural depicts the fields in full leaf - a fabulous sight to see. Below is the photograph I took last year of the fields myself.
So many different varieties! Obviously, this was shot from a distance, since you can't get into the fields! But, now, back to murals...
These three came from the Rotary Park in town - a delightful place with benches and a Koi pond, complete with a little bridge crossing it. They represent 2 different murals - Layers of Time and Birding. Lake Placid is on the State Birding Trail and the couty offers sanctuary to more than 300 winged species. They have an annual bird count, conducted by volunteers every December.
Stay tuned for more photos in the weeks to come. I will try to share a little more history each time. Thanks for visiting!
By the way, the mural I posted last week, of the Cracker Trail Cattle Drive (on the side of Winn Dixie), is 175 feet wide by 30 feet high!
