Beauty in the drizzle

Pretty things in the drizzle at Noccalula Falls in north Alabama. We were lucky that the rain had stopped while we walked around the park. A little drizzle for a short time but at least the pouring rain had stopped. It was still a beautiful place even in the gloom.

The petting zoo animals were having fun in the mild weather.

I would like to get back there in the fall when the leaves are changing.

Timing is everything

We finally planned a trip to go to Birmingham to visit my sister and her husband in late March. The weather had been so crazy so we weren’t sure whether to bring sweaters or shorts. The weather turned out perfect over Easter weekend while we were there. On Saturday, we spent the day doing tourist stuff all around town. I grew up in Birmingham but had not been back in many years. On Saturday we went to the Botanical Gardens. The last time I was there was over 30 years ago so I really only remembered it through pictures that my dad had taken long ago. It looked like it hadn’t changed. The tulips were in full bloom. I miss seeing the tulips when we lived in Atlanta. They were all over town so it was great to spend the morning taking pictures of them.
