I was short on time so I couldn't stick around but now I know where they are. Actually I think Flamingo Gardens used to be called Flamingo Groves, I haven't been there since I was a little girl. Maybe it's time for a visit. There are flamingos in them there gardens.
Seeing these guys today, reminded me of the house in Louisiana I lived in when my kids were growing up. We had 10 acres of land so there was room for one of everything and peacocks were no exception, we had three. Actually it was one peacock and two peahens. If you've ever been around them you know that they are really, really vocal. The sounds while quite annoying to some were always comforting to me and they are much better as an alarm clock than any old rooster.
I'm starting to settle in with my new job a bit, still not sure that working alone instead of with a large group of people is the right choice for me but ... things are going ok and I'm stating to find a bit of time for myself between show times.
I'm about 90 days into this thing, and have been able to focus on little else but work. But ... I am starting to enjoy taking photos again, collecting them daily the way some people collect seashells when they live on the seashore.
I think I got the daily photo thing from reading Steven's Sometimes Photo Blog when his daily posts were such a big part of this community.
Have a good rest of the weekend.
