Earth Laughs in Flowers, by Beverly Hicks Burch

“Earth laughs in flowers.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~ We’ve just passed the Easter season. I hope everyone had a blessed holiday and spent it in a treasured way…making memories. Everyone has traditions.

It’s Back! by Beverly Hicks Burch

Last year about this time there was a lot of hoopla about the whooper super moon we were about to experience. Supposedly the moon was going to be in the closest proximity to the Earth that it had been in 19 years. Pundits were predicting all sorts of calamities and disasters. When the mega-earthquake and… Continue reading It’s Back! by Beverly Hicks Burch

Red Top, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I love the roof on this building. I took this picture last fall. This is one of the AT & T buildings in Birmingham. It may not be a “red rag top…” but it’s definitely a red top…for sure… Save

Vulcan at Night, by Beverly Hicks Burch

The other evening we were out and about giving our out of town visitor a quick tour of the Magic City. We happened to stop for gas on the Southside of Birmingham.

No, Lee…My Heart Did Not Stop Beating, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Well, Lee came through on Labor Day and caused quite a stir. There’s good news and bad news. The good news? It appears the horrible sticky hot days of summer are gone! Hallelujah! As a matter of fact I don’t think the temperatures got out of the 50s today which meant we had our first… Continue reading No, Lee…My Heart Did Not Stop Beating, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Horticulture Cocktail, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I snapped this picture the other day over at Mom’s…our certified “yard putterer”. Mom comes by it naturally from her daddy who got it from his momma. Guess it’s a family thing and kind of passed down to me when I took horticulture in college. I just thought this was a sweet little “horticulture cocktail”… Continue reading Horticulture Cocktail, by Beverly Hicks Burch

The Wonders of Modern Technology, The Horrors of Mother Nature, by Beverly Hicks Burch

 I lived through the 1973 tornado that devastated Brent, AL and then came up through Center Point, AL I also acutely remember the 1974 Tornado Super Outbreak and a horrific F5 tornado that carved a path through Birmingham on April 8, 1998. Yes, those were scary times for my home state. They were innocent times… Continue reading The Wonders of Modern Technology, The Horrors of Mother Nature, by Beverly Hicks Burch
