Alabama’s flower is the oak leaf Hydrangea  the photo below…the plant looks like the sorting hat in the Harry Potter movies.

the grown up toy store for gardeners

Something for everyone at Leaf & Petal’s Cahaba Heights location. Privately owned & operated – #buylocal         (shhh, this place is so cool, i picked up a job application (working from home can get boring)…imagine spending the day deadheading flowers!

Alabama Biscuit…

i haven’t posted any locally owned & operated establishments lately…i ate here yesterday. I’ve always thought of biscuits as greasy & extremely unhealthy. I was shocked to find that this wonderful coffee shop’s food was healthy. it appeared that all the food had been grown in Alabama, the honey from our fat Alabama honey bees……

Hey Birmingham, guess what we’ve got!!

an amazing new LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED coffee & biscuit place to enjoy. #buy_local support your local business & then we will all thrive. right??  Alabama Biscuit is located in Cahaba Heights. I saw local honey, spelt, jams & jelly. All healthy food. The first photo is my breakfast. It filled me up, but i wanted more…

as luck would have it…

the rain Mother Nature dropped on us knocked the leaf into it’s opposite colored grass & i happened to have camera in hand.

Yukon Trading Co.

One of my favorite local (privately owned) businesses.  Located five minutes from my house, much to my husband’s chagrin. The owner is a wonderful, warm & giving woman. P.S. the fish? I it sits beside my fireplace b/c my husband loves to fish at Saab Lake in Pell City. This is his biggest catch yet….
