tallahassee spring street scene
A nice march 8th spring scene, in Tallahassee, florida, usa. Just a street, one amoungst many, here in Tallahassee. Most of the downtown "old neighborhoods" are like this; a near-tropical scene appears at every turn.

Must be 75 degrees now, at about 4 PM. The temperature has been over 80 degrees already about three or four times in the last couple of weeks.

One of the sloguns that the city chamber of commerce uses here is, "Tallahassee: where spring begins"! The March of spring, up the continent, from about 28 North, to about southern canada, begins here about the end of feburary. In my hometown of Interlaken, new york, I would not see scenes like this until the middle of May, if then!

On the other hand, this scene, here, is like this in the middle of January!!
