Ta Daaaaa!



I checked another one off the Bucket List yesterday. I finally got my feet( knees) wet in the shoals of the Cahaba River. Staying on my feet was a  feat in itself, but thanks to many helping hands, I managed to  capture a few photos of the infamous Cahaba Lily! ( Hymenocallis coroniaria) These lovelies only thrive in shoals with an open canopy and moving water and bloom from May - June.

A special thank you to Independent Presbyterian Church's Highland Avenue Forum for sponsoring Dr. Larry Davenport's lecture last week as well as our outing yesterday which he led.
