Here is something placed on a signal box near a high school, in tallahassee, florida usa. Several people have wrote on this, in fact I met a young high school girl who was walking away from adding her bit to this image. A very intelligent looking lady, she was.
very nice to see, compared to the "gansta" type of nametags often seen.

happy everything!

happy everything!, originally uploaded by freestone.

happy everything!
One reef to cover them all!
Here at my Senior Residence, Georgia Belle Apartments for Independant Living, there are about 150 apartments, with about 150 doors. Most residents put something up on the door.
[not single men, most of them have nothing on their doors!]
This person made this reef, "Happy Everything"! One reef to cover them all, all of the holidays!

I do not know this person, but i can make an educated Guess as to
her history.
the Reef!
from clockwise from the top:
---snowman is for winter.
---heart is for valintine's day.
---bunny is for Easter.
---flower [rose? camelia?] is for spring.
---"red object covered by leaf" might be Memorial day.
---flag is for 4th of july.
---watermelon is not only for summer, perhaps she is from Montecelo, a town about 30 miles away, a town that celebrates
the watermelon festival.
---the books and apples indicate school begins, she might have been a school teacher!
---the pumpkin is for fall and Halloween.
---the Turkey is for Thankgiving.
---the santa claus is for Christmas.

I do not know this person, and i wonder what her "story' is?
Each of these doors, that are decorated, infer something about the person who lives within. Most of the decorations are "things bought at walmart", readymade, but there are indeed a few very creative people here who make up their own Doors.
[I would like to think that this reef is hand-made, but I really cannot tell]
Often the most "quiet little old lady", has a life where there were some Interesting and amazing things done within her 90-odd years of living.

there are other "doors" in my photostream, images of people's doors
at georgia belle.

my own Door!

They are under the heading...."MY VISIONS OF HEAVEN"..

moss on a wall
Nice green moss on a wall after a lot of rain. I see this moss, here in Tallahassee, florida, and even up North in my hometown area of Upstate, new york, Interlaken, ny. Usually in shady places, like of this moss growing on a north-facing wall about a foot off of the ground.

green moss-like algea on a rotting wood wall.

green moss-like algea on a rotting wood wall.
moss? not quite. more like "algea", or "lichen".
the whole wall is covered, ten feet by six.

here in tallahassee. florida, usa, there is 60 inches of rain a year and
days in january of 70 degrees.

I took this photo after about three inches of rain fell, in two days, so the wall got really wet. The falling down shed is well rotted, probably held up by the stored material inside of it.
Note the shadows of the late afternoon creeping across this wall.

a closup, *almost* machro phot, perhaps *A* machro photo, as the camera was about a foot away from the wall, no magnification used.

Almost like artwork. the darker green has a very interesting pattern.

January at the Palantation house

January at the Palantation house
yes, january 7th, here in tallahassee, florida, usa. You can see flowers [Camellias] on the bushes in the background, the green plants, and the ferns on the trunck and branches of the Live Oak. The ferns are called "Resurrection Ferns" because they dry up to what looks like a dead plant until it rains, then they look as they do now.
The plntation house is used by the city for the park headquarters; the plantation is about five blocks from downtown and back in about 1850 this house with its 500 acre plantation was out in the country.

A fireplace in each room, slaves did the stoking of the wood, slaves did all of the labor. "the good old days" were good only for the top 10%, i guess, much like Athens of Old, was composed of about 60%
slaves. I read that Rhode Island, when it was settled, had the most slaves, maybe 40% of its people.
Probably many many slaves were involved with this plantation.

All Beauty has its Price.

Brokaw-McDougall House:
A "Gone with the Wind" kind of Classical Revival plantation home, built in 1856 with balustraded balcony, full-width veranda and Corinthian columns. The formal gardens were laid out in the 1850’s and restored by the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Today, it is used as a popular conference and event site. 329 N. Meridian St., 891-3900,

One of the finest remaining antebellum homes in Tallahassee is the Brokaw-McDougall House. When first built in or around 1856, it was on the outskirts of town. Its original owner, Peres Bonney Brokaw, ran a prosperous livery stable business downtown, and also found time to serve in city government, the state legislature and in the Confederate Cavalry. His daughter married Alexander McDougall, then a recent immigrant from Scotland. Members of the Brokaw and McDougall families lived in the house until it was sold to the State of Florida in 1973. The state made the house available for conferences, receptions, meeting space and special events. It also served as the headquarters of the Historic Tallahassee Preservation Board until May 1997. January 1998 the City of Tallahassee leased the house from the State of Florida for $1 a year and began operations and management of the facility. It continues to be used as a popular conference and event site.

Architecturally, the house is an outstanding Classical Revival building with strong Italianate influences. The formal gardens were laid out in the early 1850’s prior to the construction of the main house. They were restored as a Bicentennial project of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs.

Now, on January 8th, the *second* Emancipation holiday is about to be celebrated, jan. 15th: Martin Luther King day..
