Pink House I

 The Bridges Studios, the historic home in Edgewood has new owners and been thankfully spared from the wrecking ball. Over the past two weeks, I've had the privilege of getting to know the owners and capturing all the wonderful sculpture in and around the home. It's lovingly referred to as The Pink House, for obvious reasons. I hope you'll enjoy touring the home and gardens!

Coming Soon!

Third Friday at Shoppe

 I"m very lucky to have one of the hippest garden shops located just a block from my home.  Jay Draper and Mark Thompson manage to find the most beautiful plants and irresistible containers and gifts as well. On the Third Friday of every month. They throw an afternoon workshop along with wine and appetizers. Today we all left with adorable little vases with locally grown flowers from area flower farmers.

Future Photographers!

Today I had some big fun. I worked with 8 fifth graders from our IPC Summer Learning Program at our Children's Fresh Air Farm. These kiddos were part of our STAIR reading program as second graders and are invited to attend the program every summer through their fifth grade year. It's six weeks of reading and math with wonderful teachers, in the mornings, nourishing breakfasts, lunches and snacks, and swimming and exciting enrichment activities in the afternoons. This year, the fifth graders were encouraged to choose some extra activities of interest,  and I was asked to do photography with this group. After a short discussion about taking better photos, each one took my camera and photographed their classmates. They took some terrific photographs. I"m so proud of them!

It's Not Too Early To Wave the Flags!

If I want to find some terrific old and new flags, I head down Hwy. 208 to Harpersville to visit my friend Barbara Adkins at Black Sheep Antiques. She carries a wonderful collection of vintage flags and her shop is always decked out year round.

Blessing of the Animals

Yesterday began a new tradition at Independent Presbyterian Church. Rev. Susan Clayton and Rev. David Seamon greeted dozens of animals, from dogs, cats and rabbits. I left early so who knows what other critters came for a blessing! Here are a few of the photos I managed to capture amidst the sniffing, barking and delightful chaos!

Southern Garden History Society Series I

Home of Camille Butrus

This weekend I have had the pleasure of volunteering to guide bus tours for the attendees at the Southern Garden History Society's meeting, being held at our Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I've so enjoyed showing off my beautiful hometown, and vitiating some outstanding gardens for myself. Of course, meeting so many lovely visitors to our city was just a delight.

For the next few days, I'll share some of my images.
