adelaide street, before work

It's still unseasonably mild – especially this morning. What a pleasant day to walk to work!  I just know I'll be crying a frozen river any day now.  

In the meantime, how pretty is that morning sky in that window over the door?  My little journey along Adelaide Street finds a number of buildings with their names over the doors, the stories behind which will vastly outlive the glass and steel condos and offices being constructed behind them.

I love this special tribute to a tree stump.  A tree stump monument.

Charming block of eateries on John Street, just north of Adelaide.

    OMG I love this little tree stump. What is the story with this little guy? Great pics.

    You won’t believe it, Jen, but many years ago when I was a student I lived in a street in Sydney called Adelaide Street. It wasn’t as nice as your Adelaide Street but I was fond of it. The window in the top photo is gorgeous!

    I so want to visit your part of the world!! Anywhere that has a tribute to a tree stump is somewhere I wanna go!

    I believe it! This Adelaide isn’t that nice in all parts, but wonderfully interesting. I could focus on it for this blog for a month, just in my little area of it!

    Would love to have you visit someday Carol!
