Ready to Race

These three look ready to race their tractors 
at the Orrville Tractor Show last Saturday.

The event brings tractor enthusiasts from Alabama and nearby states
 and features lots of activities for children in addition 
to antique tractors, cars and engines.

Handmade

Who wouldn't love a handmade doll or stuffed critter? 

The ladies at By Jeanann not only make these adorable huggables
 but clothes to fit American Girl dolls, purses, quilts
 and most anything out of fabric scraps. 

I found these at Lilly Beck Originals outdoor vendors sale
 that continues through today.

And the Drought Goes On

The colors, they are a'changin' early this year but not without a quick wilt!

As soon as the ginkgo leaves turn from green to gold, they crumple!
 And that is no thanks to this extended heat and drought!
 James Spann says the drought may break by mid-November,
 and cooler air is on the way.

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.

 in downtown Selma.
