Sunday Church Series - Easter Sunday


I share this image from my church, Independent Presbyterian Church. For all of my followers who celebrate Easter, I hope it is a blessed day for you and your family.

For my Jewish readers, I send blessings as you celebrate Passover.

Palm Sunday... Uh Oh!


 On Palm Sunday, the children of our church parade through the hallways with their palms singing, Hosanna. This sweet girl didn't let a this ruffle her enthusiasm!

Preparations

On the Friday before Palm Sunday, the ladies at Independent Presbyterian Church gather to lovingly make hundreds of palm crosses to be pinned on Palm Sunday. There is much friendly talk and laughter as they share this beautiful tradition.

Oh Fiddle Dee Dee!


Fiddleheads or fiddlehead greens are the furled fronds of a young fern, and these guys are springing up all over town. I love them!

Star Magnolia


The whimsical, carefree cousin to the our more sedate southern magnolias. This one blooms in early spring before it's leaves open. I love it.

The Last Camellia

I have long been a fan of spent blossoms. This was taken in the beautiful Hess Camellia Garden at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Read With Me


One of my favorite "jobs"( joys)  is visiting STAIR Birmingham sites all over the city and taking photographs. Today, I was right at home at my church, Independent Presbyterian Church. STAIR ( Start The Adventure In Reading) provides twice a week, one on one reading tutoring for second grade students from Birmingham City Schools. It's a wonderful program providing much needed reading mentoring along with a lot of love.

STAIR Birmingham now has 14 sites throughout the city and growing. Please visit their website to learn more.

Hear Me Roar!


Across the street fro, The Garages, Fritz Woehle stored a treasure trove of old statuary, doors and so much more from his travels. I have been fortunate to get inside the gates and photograph. Fritz even took me there once. A photographer's paradise.

Sunday Church Series - Reflections


After weeks of rain, last Sunday was bright and sunny. As I sat in church, I looked up and was startled at the gorgeous play of color and light reflected on the balcony wall from the stained glass window. I made a mental note of the time and went back last Wednesday to try and capture it.
