The Terrace Gate

If you see a sunflower on the terrace gate, then you know it time for storytelling!

Most folks around here associate sunflowers with the late Kathryn Tucker Windham,
 who founded the Alabama Tale-Tellin' Festival 36 years ago.
 The festival has had many venues during those years,
 and now it's located at Carneal ArtsRevive
 on the banks of the Alabama River. 

The festival is this weekend, so join us for some great family fun!

Locally Grown

I finally made it to the Selma-Dallas County Farmers' Market the other day
 and BEFORE everything had sold! The peas and corn were already gone,
 but there were plenty of peaches, squash, okra, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes.
 Today, the market will be full of vendors for its annual Market Day,
and gift baskets of produce, flowers and more will be given away 
every 15 minutes until noon.
