Marble is one of the dogs featured on Sky Hill Animal Society's Christmas tree at the Selma Riverwalk. Numerous businesses and organizations decorated trees, and they can be seen along the walk and even from the Pettus Bridge as vehicles drive into downtown.

It's May Theme Day at City Daily Photo Blogs,
and we are sharing "Let's Eat!"
Since I could not decide on one meal from so many great
Selma-area restaurants, I returned to a pasture
where spring grass is growing, and the cattle are so glad
to be eating something besides hay!

That dark cloud is just pretending it wants to rain,
because it was a perfect weather day in the Black Belt prairies
of west Dallas County. Those yellow wildflowers are
prairie buttercups, and they can be spectacular
when covering an entire field.

are a few of the river birds that you might see in the
Alabama Black Belt. This informative sign is located
on an overlook at the end of Clear Creek Nature Trail in the

The one-room schoolhouse at Old Cahawba still stands.
Used until the 1950s, it was one of less than 100 segregated
African-American schools in Alabama. The school is located near
the ruins of the Methodist-Episcopal Church that burned in 1954.

The bright colors and flowers at Pringle Petals sure make
a shopper want to go inside. The shop moved from across
Broad Street, and its larger location offers a
wider selection of gifts, plus flowers.

The family of John R. Bell apparently MEMORIALIZED him as
the victim of a murder when he and his son, John A. Bell,
were killed in a shootout on the streets of Cahawba in 1856.
The three other men involved were exonerated in court,
but the Bell Family declared via the inscription on his tombstone:
"No murderer hath eternal life abiding in him."
