Lilies at Valley Grande Park

These delicate white lilies were still blooming at Valley Grande Park
 a couple of weeks ago. They resemble the famous Cahaba River lilies
 in Bibb County. Does anyone know what type of lily these are?

The Horsehead Fountain

One of Selma's most unusual sites in the horsehead fountain
 on Water Avenue. Located at the entrance of Lafayette Park 
and corner of the St. James Hotel, it makes a great photo op!

Morning in Lafayette Park

It's early morning, but the sun is already bright in Lafayette Park. 

At left is the Bridgetender's House where the operator
 of the old swing bridge lived. The marker in the center explains its history.
 That bridge was replaced in 1940 by the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

August Theme Day (My City's Skyline)

Along Dallas Avenue looking east toward Broad Street, church steeples
 form Selma's skyline. I caught this view shortly after sunrise.
 At left, you can barely see Cornerstone Presbyterian.
 At right is Church Street United Methodist, and just to the left
 of it is First Baptist, Lauderdale Street.

A New View of the Bridge

The demolition of a damaged building on Water Avenue made way
 for a new VIEW of the Pettus Bridge, but these VINES grew over 
the fence while VARIOUS construction and repair projects took place.

Chilton County Peaches

Chilton County is smack in the center of Alabama, and Dallas County
 is fortunate to be located directly south of it and the yummiest peaches
 you ever tasted. Chilton is home of the Peach Festival and the
 giant peach tower along Interstate 65, and its peach producers
 truck this sweet fruit our way every June.

Downtown Daylilies



Recent construction at Church Street and Water Avenue 
kept these downtown daylilies hidden.
 But once the barriers came down,
 there they were!
