Is There Is GOLD In Them Thar Hills?


The State of Alabama has been under a gripping drought that does not seem as it is going to let go. So far St Clair County is not producing much Fall color. The leaves on the trees are turning brown and falling off. In the area around Pell City, it is about the same story. I could not wait until Fall arrived so I could go play with my camera. It has been extremely disappointing. I did find an place in the Talladega National Forest that produced some pretty colors. What … (9 comments)

Artscape Festival at Lakeside Park Was a Success
The weather was perfect to enjoy the Artscape Festival today at Lakeside Park in Pell City, AL. The artist that participated in the show had many hand crafted treasures. The talent of the artist was shown through the unique items on display today at the festival.   
                                                                                                                                                             
My favorite piece from the Artscape Festival is this oil/acrylic painting. It caught my eye because the oil was so thick it had a 3D effect. Jerone Vason told me this particular painting took two months to dry. My photograph does not come close to showing the beauty … (12 comments)

pell city: Hummingbird Feeders - 09/18/10 06:10 PM
 

 
                                                       Hummingbird Feeders
 
I have shown a lot of homes in the Pell City, St Clair and Talladega area that had  hummingbird feeders in their back yard.  So this year, I put up a hummingbird feeder.   I have enjoyed sitting on my deck and watching the little guys feed.
It is understood that the hummingbirds will migrate.  Do you do take the feeder down now, or wait until all the other hummingbirds have had time to pass through the area on their way to migrate to take it down?
