I visited a special town today.
I just sat in these flowers and stared up at the old courthouse.
I tried to imagine Monroeville, Alabama in 1903 when the courthouse was brand new...and in the 1930's when a lawyer named A.C. Lee walked through these doors.
Then I went inside...
I looked up at the tin ceiling stamped with dogwood blossom designs and I stared down at the shiny, pine floors...and then I climbed the stairs.
I stared down over the railing, just like the characters Scout, Jem and Dill did in the book To Kill a Mockingbird.
Better than Flowers!
Then I found a better place to pose than flowers.
I will always remember my trip to this small southern town where Harper Lee grew up. So much of To Kill a Mockingbird was based on her childhood memories here. I wonder if she ever found small treasures in the hole of a tree, like Jem and Scout did?
I should have found a tree hole to pose in before I left!
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
