Chain of Parks
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.

Just love our Big Oaks with the Spanish Moss!
Dear Lois, it's a fabulous place, and your picture is really nice!Thanks for this beautiful post!
Big, beautiful, blooming bushes! Bravo!
Looks like a lovely place for almost anything.
Another series of treasures in Tallahassee that I knew not of!
Camelias are so nice. This is one healthy bush!
And it's cold here, too! This has been a truly crazy winter!
Chain of parks--I like that. MB
Cool place and unique tree.
The Spanish Moss. Love that stuff. Looks great in your photo too.
The camellia bush is as spectacular as these wonderful trees.
I love that Spanish moss.

Must be warmer there than here - our camelia tree is only putting out buds!
The spanish moss there is truly beautiful.
Oh I love this, the hanging moss is something I have never actually seen (although I've seen photos before, this on is especially nice!) Also, I have not seen camellias blooming since leaving California, so thanks for that, too.

A chain of parks is a great idea!
Lois, I love this picture. Tallahassee is such a beautiful city, and my favorite part is all of the beautiful greenery and the gorgeous flowers. When we would visit my brother, my husband was always amazed, he likes to say that you could plant a popsicle stick in Tally and you'd get a beautiful flower! Kathy
Any snow yet up your way? It's 41 degrees and raining here. Just ugly! Yuk!
I like the spanish moss. Great perspective. Thanks for sharing.
We are having the same weather as you Jacob. Have not seen any flakes, but it is getter colder out there!
Wow! No problem finding some shade there.
