Similar to Through the Blinds, this is a view of the patio overlooking Sarasota bay, seen through the window of the breakfast room of John and Mable Ringling’s winter mansion in Florida. The delicately tinted glass used in all the windows was imported from Italy and provides a happy glow to the interior. Lovely as the inside is, I’d give anything to have
my morning coffee at sunrise on this patio. Wouldn’t you?
