As I passed through downtown Lake Placid and drove by Stuart Park, I was so taken by how clean and beautiful this little town really is. This is the time of year when the caladiums are in full bloom and decorate the streets of Lake Placid. I just happened to have my camera in my pocketbook......................
Lake Placid, Fl is known as the Caladium Capital of the World. It has been written that "When God finished creating flowers: he turned a flower into a leaf". He must have been referring to Caladiums. ...... Here are a few pictures that I took of the Caladiums in downtown Lake Placid's Stuart Park.
Lake Placid is also known as the Town of Murals............. They decorate many a building as you drive the streets of this quiet country town. Here are a few of my favorites from the 44 that are displayed in the town. Not only are they beautiful, the depict the history of the town and the people who lived here.
This next one ( actually the next TWO photos) is displayed along the side wall of the food market in town. They actually are all in a row on ONE wall. With this display there is also music!
And this last one.........the top photo is the Clown Museum in town, and the bottom photo is displayed on the outside wall of our doctor's office.
