Serenity in Nature




Branches, bark and Spanish Moss trim the elegant "Serenity in Nature" butterfly sculpture.

Sponsored by Pearce Catfish Farm and designed by artist Michael Sims, notice the base. It is cut out and filled with water.

To see more butterflies, visit The Butterfly Project.

To read a recent column about Selma, her butterflies and her metamorphosis, go to "Change Can Happen in Small Towns and Across the Nation."

It is written by syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson, who once lived in Montgomery. She was in Selma to talk about her latest book, "Poor Man's Provence: Finding Myself in Cajun Louisiana" at the Lunch at the Library regional authors series.

Nature is one thing that will never change but the environments in Nature will have to change to survive.

It looks like the butterfly is caught up in the tree. I like this one.

Your butterfly post has convinced me that I need to get back to Selma (it has been years and years) and take a look around.

HI Steve...Selma would be delighted to have you, and I need to get back to Cajun Country and take more photos of the Evangeline Oak, eat gumbo and listen to the music. Have a great day!

Ooh, another butterfly! I think I like this one the best so far. The others have been wonderfully colorful, but I like this one's theme of serenity — something I strive for everyday.
