Magnolias and Icicles, Oh My!
So, today, I was out running errands, and I saw these icicles on a rock formation by the river. As I drove past, I thought to myself, that would be a good picture. Then, at the next opportunity, I did a u-turn and went back to take the picture! Good to have your camera with you and to have the time to stop when that interesting picture presents itself.
I took several shots, but this one of the icicles and the magnolia leaves spoke volumes about living in Tuscaloosa right now. Yes, we are in the Deep South (hence the shiny, green magnolia leaves), but we are also in the midst of a deep freeze (hence the icicles!). The high today was only 33! That's darn cold for Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
