It's springtime, Tallahassee...

Also, it's Springtime Tallahassee. I did not attend the festivities this weekend. Mostly due to the fact that I spent several years living at the start of the parade route, where staging would begin bright and early on a Saturday morning. But, that's a story for another time...

I will discuss the fact that Tally is lovely this time of year. I remember a slogan from when I was a kid--I don't recall if it was specifically for Springtime Tallahassee or if it was just some general Chamber of Commerce-y thing--"Tallahassee, where springtime comes first". To that I say, "word". It's still cold in lots of the U.S., but not here. Balmy and blooming like mad. Check out the flowery-ness just in my yard alone (and these are just random camera phone pics taken on the spur of the moment):








And those are just the azaleas. We also got dogwoods, wisteria, camellias, it's a madhouse of blooming things. And pollen galore...not a happy time for the allergy prone. But everything looks so pretty...

I really enjoy living on the parade route, myself.
