I was headed for my car to go home after work last Friday when I looked up and saw this guy playing his guitar, singing and enjoying the beautiful weather and warm sun on the top floor of my parking garage on the Florida State University campus in Tallahassee. This week we are having another blast of cold weather. Hopefully it is the last one because my son is getting married in 3 weeks in an outdoor ceremony!

One last shot from my lunch in the park last week. This is the sidewalk across the street from Genevieve Randolph Park. I had to duck to keep my hair from touching the Spanish moss hanging from the trees as I was headed for my car to go back to work. I love to look at the moss, but I don't like it touching me!

This house is located on Park Avenue in downtown Tallahassee and was built in 1896 for Mrs. Newell E. Walker whose husband, Mr. S. May Walker, operated a clothing store in Tallahassee for some years. It has been restored and is now used as office space.

Believe it or not, these pine trees are located right in the middle of the city of Tallahassee. They surround a house on one of the busiest streets in town. The house is practically hidden from view while just across the street is a busy shopping area that includes the biggest mall in town and behind it are office buildings.

This sculpture is located in the Peace Rose Garden in Genevieve Randolph Park which I showed you a picture of last week. It is surrounded by rose bushes which are not in bloom right now, but that gives me an idea for another blog post when spring arrives! The Peace Rose Garden was dedicated on April 29, 1995 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Peace Rose and the end of World War II. It is sponsored by the City of Tallahassee and the Tallahassee Area Rose Society . I could not find any more information on the sculpture.

It's hard to drive by Krispy Kreme and not stop when this sign is lit up, because that means the doughnuts are just now coming out of the fryer and onto the conveyor belt to be smothered with that delicious sugary glaze and everyone knows they taste better hot! What better way to start a Monday morning?

The goldfinches have taken over the feeder in my backyard lately. I took this picture through the glass in my back door. I liked this shot because of the goldfinch coming in for a landing to the right of the feeder. There is also one sitting on top of the feeder waiting his turn. These goldfinches are displaying their winter plumage. To see more beautiful critters from around the world, please visit Camera Critters.

Florida Taxwatch is located in this old church building in downtown Tallahassee. After I took this picture, I noticed the old windows above the door were reflecting a little bit of blue sky and the trunk of the giant oak tree in front of this building.

The Chain of Parks located on Park Avenue in downtown Tallahassee was established in the late 19th Century and planted by the Tallahassee Improvement Association (TIA). Ponce de Leon Park was the first to be established followed by Lewis Park, Cherokee Park, E. Peck Greene Park, McCarty Park, Bloxham Park and Genevieve Randolph Park (shown here) which was named after the woman who spearheaded the work of the TIA. Click to enlarge the picture and you can see a camellia bush blooming on the right.

Gone are the days of being able to drive down the street in front of the Florida Governor's Mansion near downtown Tallahassee. These gates went up several years ago. You can still walk down that street, but it's not the same! I posted a picture of the Florida Governor's Mansion when I first started my blog and you can see that picture here.
