Welcome to the 15th "Play it Again, Toads!" where we revisit archived challenges of this amazing Imaginary Garden. Choose your own from the archives on the sidebar (2011-2015) or select from three I've highlighted below.
You may use my i-phone photography I offer here - if so, please use the photo with an archived challenge. Click on any image to enlarge and see them more clearly. These images are from The Lightner Museum in St. Augustine, FL - originally one of Henry Flagler's majestic hotels, The Alcazar, and it had everything the rich could desire… a russian bath, spa, state of the art work out facility, casino, movie theatre, and the largest indoor pool in the world with retractable roof when it was built in 1888, among other things. In 1948, it was purchased by Chicago publisher Otto C. Lightner to house his … collection.
This video does a great job with its history. Enjoy.
Original poems only and link your specific post to Mr. Linky below. Please make it clear which challenge you are resurrecting by including a link. Sharing poetry and commenting on the other poetic endeavors is what makes this a fun place to be. So please don't forget to return a few times and visit and enjoy what is created here.
