“Outer Walls of Villa Vizcaya”

 

Description from Cuban Queen Crazy Chick: Vizcaya is a breathtaking waterfront mansion in Miami, FL built in 1910 and is now actually considered a museum. My grandmother took me here when I was a child and the memory of this place has stayed with me ever since.

    whoa! Georgeous Pick, georgous building.

    the garden reminds me of Dunbarton Oaks’ garden (Virginia/Georgetown?)

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Thank you Mary! Not familiar with any of VA/Georgetown but I bet it’s nice!

    if you asked me the name I wouldn’t have been able to come up with it – but soon as I saw that garden, ping! there it was.
    I was a landscape architecture student – years ago – hard work, but FUN! we took so many field trips to see beautiful & well executed examples of L.A. in real life, instead of just books – anyway, that was one of the places we visited. You shared your memory of your grandmother and reminded me of a cool memory….. neat.

    I love this Ivy- beautiful- I wouldn’t think to be the blue beads with picture jasper- someone gave me some and I never thought to do it with blue- cant wait to see what it looks like.

    not the greatest picture – and it’s in winter, but I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for – here’s a bit of a feel though – with one of the semi-formal terraces.

    Ivy,

    what a splendid and lovely Pick to an amazing place, thanks for the pics of how it looks too – such a majestic place, my hat’s off to you once again for doing a Pick about such a special place, so many colors to try to capture. Your Pick gives a lovely romantic “sand and sea” feel, another Fav!!! :)

    I went to Vizcaya as a child, too! What a magical place! I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, and my mom took me there several times. Years later, I took my two daughters. They loved it, too. Beautiful pick!
