Maclay Gardens State Park, Tallahassee, Florida

I took a walk through Maclay Gardens today. Fewer flowers were blooming than I expected--mostly there are the last of the azaleas, the last of the camellias, wisteria, the last of the dogwoods, and petunias. I was surprised that there appeared to be no rose garden area, and in fact none of the more exotic plants that I recall seeing there were in evidence, blooming or not.

Nonetheless, I got several photos of flowers and the pathways that run among them--and one very large live oak tree.

Peggy, GREAT Photos, thank you!

In Tallahassee, try the Chapman Park pond, one block east of Myers Park.

There's been a resident heron for some time, waterfowl, Canada geese, etc., and a TPRD employee has built a platform in the lake for turtles to sun themselves on.

The solar-powered gizwhizzy in the center aerates the lake water (it's a closed basin).
