I’ve posted this house previously. I like their elephants. Now they have added a nutcracker, Christmas wreath and a little horse and carriage. As I search through my old posts I see that someone at this house decorates for the seasons. How fun!
You can see we don’t have any snow. And I didn’t realize how green our grass still is until I looked at this photo.
Here is what I wrote on on Oct. 28:
I first posted a photo of this Mansion with the elephants in Aug. of 2010. At that time I wrote:
These elephants welcome visitors to this Congdon home on East Third Street. Elephants are symbols of prosperity, wealth, good luck, strength and power. It also represents perseverance, in that it is an extremely hard working animal. Some worship the elephant so much as to make it their national symbol, such as Thailand. Elephants are also seen as symbols of wisdom and dignity, because of their incredible intelligence and very long life span. In Christian symbolismÂ the elephant is an icon of temperance, patience, and chastity.
Of course in the United State they are associated with the Republican Party.

I usually don’t care for the newer sleek (read boring) new buildings in downtown Duluth. But I do appreciate the simple design of the three wreaths on Maurices on West Superior Street. Duluth is the corporate headquarters of Maurices. They like to tell people not to capitalize the “M” on their name, but I don’t listen to them.
The English Coulee in Grand Fork North Dakota flows through the campus of the University of North Dakota and also behind the hospital and clinic (Which have gone through numerous name changes.)
Read what the Grand Cities Bird Club has to say about the Coulee here.
The Duluth steam plant heats most of downtown Duluth including two major medical centers.

You can just barely see Lake Superior as the sun glistens on the water.
The red lights are the television, radio towers. The area is known as the Duluth Antenna Farm. In the foreground is the Coppertop Church.
I liked the yellow color of these leaves and was surprised that they were still on the tree. At first I thought that a photo of it wouldn’t work within the City Daily Photo project’s guidelines ( The theme is your city only.
The published photo should be about your city, ideally a photo that couldn’t be taken anywhere else. Try to avoid posting pets, flowers, etc. for you can find them everywhere. Instead, try to show you visitors the most interesting parts of your city.) because nothing distinguished it as being in Duluth, but of course the Nordic Waste garbage cans give away the city’s location.
