Found a 5-leaf clover in my garden this morning. Definitely a step up from a four leaf one.

Over the years that I have stayed underneath the Alabama skies, I have grown more and more enchanted by them. It is one of life’s simple pleasures – looking up and seeing blue skies above. And in Alabama, its especially blue.

Here are some pictures I took in Birmingham, and one when I was on my way to Birmingham.

This is a picture on my way home, which is on Highland Avenue. I often walk gazing up in the sky during winter months because thats when we have the most clear skies.

About a week back on my way back from Huntsville, Alabama, we were crossing the I-65 bridge over the Tennessee river. Now first and foremost, the bridge itself is quite beautiful. I wish I could tell you the architectural name for that bridge but it slips my memory. But I digress. As you are crossing the Tennessee river, the view is absolutely marvellous. Its a wide river with lush vegetation along its banks and an equally beautiful sky above.

A few days back, the weather was slightly cloudy. But despite the cloudy weather, one still sees how lovely the fluffy clouds appear around here. This picture was in front of the Southside Baptist Church on the 10th St.

Tree getting ready for spring beneath blue skies

Spring is already making its appearance in Birmingham. As I was walking down a sidewalk, I noticed a tree that was getting ready for its spring bloom. Tiny leaves and flower buds were coming up all over this tree. What was even more beautiful was the whole setup. The tree getting ready to blossom underneath a cloudy blue sky. Yes, cloudy blue sky – its possible and I’ve seen it, and now you have too.
