We have snowballs in April!
This snowball tree graces the rear courtyard at the Vaughan-Smitherman Museum.
I've seen quite a few of these small trees around town,
and they are just magnificent!
The structure in the background was built with part of the facade
from the old Hotel Albert, which was located where the City Hall complex
now stands. Designed after the Doge's Palace in Venice, Italy,
the hotel was built before and after the Civil War.
It was demolished in 1969, a loss that spurred Selmians to try harder
to preserve their historic structures.
