Skywatch Friday (Skies of Blue)


"I see skies of blue..... clouds of white

Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights

And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world."


This verse in Louis Armstrong's heartwarming song, "What a Wonderful World" certainly describes June in Selma. Most days, the skies are blue, the clouds are white, and the temperature is in the comfortable 80s. Add green trees and these magnificent white crape myrtle against white buildings and black ironwork, and we have summer in the Deep South!

The building above is the Selma-Dallas County Public Library, one of the most popular places in town during the summer.

That's the prettiest library I have ever seen! But with perfect weather like this, I'd bring out the book to read in a park :)

Hilda, it sure is! We are so fortunate to have not only a beautiful and well-stocked library but it also serves as a downtown hub for the community with meeting rooms and all sorts of events going on.

The little courtyard with a fountain is a nice place to sit and read too.
