Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

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.

Leno did a piece on Who fought in WWII during an on-the-street interview series. The answers were scary. We must be getting old.
Whatever it is, it sure casts a very interesting shadow. Looking forward to your photo of this garden when the roses are in bloom!
I love rose gardens. I hope my roses will have made it through this winter!
Show us some pictures when they're in bloom. I'm sure they're lovely.
Can't wait to see the sculpture surrounded by roses!
It stands as a wonderful tribute not only to WWII but also world peace and what I am sure is a beautiful Rose garden.
I look forward to seeing the lovely spring roses in bloom, Lois.
Yes, I also am looking forward to this beautiful rose garden in bloom. I love that it is a tribute to WWII. I also noticed the shadow this sculpture casts - very interesting!
Perfect lighting and composition, I always like the brickwork.. nice shot
You should be able to make a book about your city from your posts. They are so nice and interesting.
Imagining the roses this is a lovely place for a tribute, you have to post this again with the flowers. The strange and fascinating sculpture looks like an old bow sundial without the pointer, fact that probably has some significance in the mind of the artist.
I like the idea and think this is very nice, but I enlarged the photo and for the life of me can't figure out how the sculpture relates to "peace." Maybe it's just me.
I love the shadows this sculpture etches upon the ground when the sun shines. This is going to be a beautiful place when the roses bloom!
Terrific shot and perfect use of the sun and shadow.
Are the donuts still hot?
Are you really living in snow country now? It has been freezing up north (in Tallahassee.) It's 48 here right now and that is cold enough. When will this cold winter weather end!!??
I'm with the rest. I can't wait to see your next shot of this place with roses in bloom.
Nice shadows (ground and pedestal too)!
I was just walking by there the other day, looks really said without the rose blooms....
It looks like a sun dial - perhaps you can get it to tell you the time!

Very interesting. I like the symbol and thanks for the history - I didn't know about the origin of the peace rose.
