Everything and anything goes, but we like creativity.

Cindy - Florida 10:45-12:00

Sorry posting so late. Today was non stop.

Every Monday, before noon, admission is free at the local Gardens. We only go on Mondays because it's free:). I figured, since this was the last week of summer break, we would pay the garden a visit and I would try to get in my creatively fit walk. I have to say, my actual cardio workout only lasted for about30 minutes. I tried to only take pictures during my walk, just walk and click. This is such a beautiful place! When the kids go back to school I might make this my regular spot for my Monday morning walks. (Except, starting October only the first Monday of each month will be free)
The lily pad photos remind me of a Monet painting.

The butterfly garden was in full bloom
and there were butterflies everywhere.

It was very hot but I did my best to keep moving.
I hope everyone had a great day!

Great shots! You just keep getting better and better. I didn't get to walk today, but not for lack of trying...I may post about it later. I have a picture anyway...

Your lily pad shot reminds me of a shot I took yesterday of a leaf floating on the river. I love the elongated version of it in the collage, but I would love to see the original as well.

Oh wow, what a great place! I wish I could come visit and really walk with you! ;) We need a Creatively Fit exchange program, ha ha!

Thanks. Yes, at some point, we should all meet somewhere for a Creatively Fit convention!! Wouldn't that be fun!?

Beautiful photographs I especially like the lily pads and the bamboo. I like the idea of a Creatively Fit convention. I hear there are great places to walk in Paris!
