Spring in Florida....Cardinal eggs and a nest

First there was just one egg and eventually after three days, there were three!  The mother cardinal was watching carefully from afar as I snapped the picture.

Oxford Exchange, Tampa

While visiting Tampa recently, the dau, her pal and I toured a group of historic homes in the Hyde Park area. Prior to, we had a lunch at the Oxford Exchange.  Inspired by buildings and architecture in the UK, this industrially-designed space is now home to a restaurant, shops and meeting spaces for private events.

Worth a visit when visiting Tampa.
