The Pink House
My gratitude to Abbie Wiersma at Art Editions and Gallery for her excellent printing and framing. Located in the Homewood Antiques, it's just a few blocks from the home. The perfect place for them to be shown.

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!

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.

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.

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.
