Locally Grown

I finally made it to the Selma-Dallas County Farmers' Market the other day
 and BEFORE everything had sold! The peas and corn were already gone,
 but there were plenty of peaches, squash, okra, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes.
 Today, the market will be full of vendors for its annual Market Day,
and gift baskets of produce, flowers and more will be given away 
every 15 minutes until noon.

Super Moon Rising

The Super Moon is rising tonight over Selma.
 It will be bigger and brighter early Saturday morning,
 but I might not be up that early!

Z if for Alabama River ZEAL

It's Z Week at ABC Wednesday, and this 20-pound striped bass is just one reason
 why folks fish the river with ZEAL. The big fish was one of a pair caught
 by Barry Cole and photographed by his wife, Judy Cole.

Celebrating Independence

"I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."

...John Adams, American Founder and second President of the United States

As if crepe myrtle isn't pink enough already, the summer blossoms
 just glow even brighter at sundown.

Y is for Yummy Supper

What could be more YUMMY than a supper of local farm-raised catfish,
 garden-fresh squash, green beans, new potatoes and cucumbers...
all topped off with a couple of hushpuppies?
 It's summertime, and the cookin' is easy!

July Theme Day, Celebrating Summer

"CELEBRATING SUMMER" is the City Daily Photo Blogs theme for July,
 and I just could not find anything more fitting than
my grandson as he kicked up his heels in the grass!
 I've already posted it on my personal Facebook page. 
Now I'm sharing it with my Selma photo blog.
Happy Summer, y'all!
