Sleeping Turtles Preserve North, with Bog Lily


February 6, 2018

Sleeping Turtles Preserve North is part of the Sarasota (Florida) County park system. Bordered by the Myakka River, it is resplendent with huge live oaks that host thousands of bromeliads, including Spanish moss. What makes this park different from other parks in the county that I have visited are the many marshy spots. This park is where I saw my first bog lily—and nearly slipped into the muck while photographing it. I was a bit more careful a couple of weeks ago when I came across another.

I have a strange confession to make concerning the blog post called GBH in SLP. On that post I intimated (because for some reason I have thought of George Bernard Shaw whenever I heard “GBH”) that “GBH” was how people referred to George Bernard Shaw. It isn’t! Obviously (even to me, now), George Bernard Shaw is “GBS”! I’m sorry if I confused any of you in my own confusion. I have no idea how that erroneous thought got lodged in my head. Thank my dear husband for setting me straight.


GBH in SLP


January 31, 2018

If you’re a big fan (as I am) of the works of George Bernard Shaw, you may be disappointed in this post. This is what birders call a GBH: Great Blue Heron. This one was trolling the shallows for fish in South Lido Park.

Update On February 6, on the post titled Sleeping Turtles Preserve North, with Bog Lily, I made a confession that I’m now (February 14) copying here. “I have a strange confession to make concerning the blog post called GBH in SLP.

Sunday morning my friend Lynda and I went to the Celery Fields to take photographs. We started clicking around 7:30, and the fog hung around for two more hours. Lucky us!
