Heritage Village in Bloom

Japanese Magnolia provide the early February foreground of the
 James M. Calhoun Law Office in Heritage Village. The office is a replica of
 U.S. Senator and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun's law office.
James was John's nephew, and John was a powerful politician from South Carolina
 and one of "The Great Triumvirate" in the 1830s and 1840s. 
 James became a lawyer and planter in Dallas County, Alabama,
 and served in the state House of Representatives and Senate. 
 This one-room, Greek Revival structure was built in the 1830s
 and moved here from the little town of Carlowville.

Blue Skies Smiling

Blues skies are FINALLY smiling!

After a week of rain, day after day after day, 6.5 inches here since last Friday,
 the wet weather systems moved out a few hours ago,
 and right now we have blue sky!
