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.

Birmingham? Paris?

ETC. in Mountain Brook Village always has the most fabulous Christmas window. Could easily rival any windows I've seen in Paris.

Foggy Day on Altamont

On my way home from work this afternoon, the fog and the trees on Altamont Road were too good to pass up. Luckily, I had my phone!

We southerners covet bittersweet. After finding a nice stand of it once on a road trip to Tennessee, and trying to drag the sticky vines out of the undergrowth, haul it home, and only to find most of the berries in the bottom of my trunk, hence the name. Whatever your *garden shop wants to charge you for this lovely it.

Oak Street Garden Shop for the win!
