Bearing a Blossom (2nd Anniversary!)



Today marks the second anniversary of the Selma, Ala., Daily Photo, and I just had to share this lovely wreath bearer in Old Live Oak Cemetery.

The red camellia caught my eye and could not have been placed in her hand for long since it hadn't wilted at all. Whoever handed her the camellia, along with strands of Spanish Moss, made my day as well as an enchanting subject for this blog.

The tombstone beneath the statue's feet memorializes a young wife who died at age 27 in 1886.

Thank you to the City Daily Photo Blog owners and to all who have visited and commented on the photographs posted here. Special thanks go to others who have shared their own pictures for posts, especially closeups of wildlife and photos of events that I could not attend.

Come back and visit as we begin the third year. I appreciate you all! (y'all!)

God bless you!
