Mystery Picture Saturday --Chance to win free note cards

Last week's mystery lady can be found at Holliday Park on the north side of Indianapolis. Holliday is a jewel box of nature in the middle of city burbs. You can take a walk along the White River, enjoy the gorgeous landscape, watch children play on an unique playground that would entice a grown up to play, or join in one of the nature programs offered at the center.

If you go, don't miss the inside viewing center to view birds at the nature center's feeders.

And the treasure of this park are the ruins from New York City. Yes, there are ruins from New York in Indianapolis....Back in the 1950 New York City's first sky scraper was being torn down in the name of a newer building. The building being torn down had marvelous sculptures fashioned from limestone taken from right here in Indiana. The city of Indianapolis won the sculptures in a contest and the sculptures were moved from New York to Holliday Park in Indianapolis.

Even though the sculptures could use a little TLC, they are very beautiful and the history of how a piece of Indiana traveled to New York and back makes a very interesting story.   

This week's mystery picture is from one of Indiana's many wetland areas. If you recognize it and want to submit a guess, enter your guess as a comment. All correct answers will be placed in a hat for a drawing on the first day of spring. The winner will receive a set of Blue Heron Moon Notecards.
