Banyan Trees from Ringling Museum, Sarasota, Florida, 2003

The Ringling Museum of Art is the former estate of John Ringling from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus. John Ringling and his wife, Mable, were art collectors and together they created the Museum in 1927. The Museum has great artwork spanning many centuries, great architecture in light of the Ringling mansion, named Cą d'Zan, and spectacular grounds featuring Banyan trees!
The photos below share some of the bayans from the Ringling Museum grounds - a spectacular playground for any tree friend!
