Saturday morning at the Park

...or when does it take one hour to walk one mile?


When you carry your camera! heehee!

(no editing on these photos!)


Cropping to see up close.


I walked around the pond and got really close to my subject!


You can always be sure of seeing wildflowers and wildlife when you visit Fletcher Park.


And for those of you who live close by, here’s an event to put on your calendar!


The May concert series will present the band, The Galen Kipar Project in concert on May 12th at 6:30 pm...FREE for everyone! Visit Fletcher Parks and Recreation for more info HERE !


And my new banner was made on IPiccy following instructions that Brenda gave on her blog HERE . I did use Picmonkey to put a frame and text on it. Thanks Brenda! Your instructions were GREAT!

Have a wonderful weekend! And NO climbing on fences! haha!


Hope you can get out and take a walk in a park near you!

Beautiful walk and gorgeous pictures. I usually walk with a friend in our neighborhoods. I have taken my camera once before and it took us forever LOL! Have a great day Diane.

Thank you for your comment today! Hugs!

Everything takes longer with a camera in tow. It's why I don't do cooking tutorials. Ha!

Lovely pictures and a beautiful header!

Those are beautiful pictures Diane. There was a "duck pond" where I used to live with a small pond where the area ducks all seemed to settle. I didn't go often, but loved feeding them. Your pictures remind of of that spot.

I like your new header too. Considering how much you love the outddoors, it seems to fit you well. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend my friend!

Gorgeous photo's.

Have a great day!

Oh wow! Your pictures are gorgeous, and I just can't believe how pretty the sky looks. Love the new banner and PicMonkey too. Enjoy your weekend.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Beautiful! I love the detailed markings on that sweet duck -- you really captured him/her well. Your new banner is great -- I haven't tried PicMonkey yet but it's on my 'to do' list.

What a beautiful park. I can see why you would want to take your time doing a walkabout there. Love your pictures! xo Diana

It's Just Dottie said...

I fell in March while running! I have been slow getting back to it. Next Friday night you can find me under the stars at our outdoor Cynthia Woods Pavilion watching the ballet Giselle. I so pray it does not rain!

Gorgeous SOC pictures! Thanks for sharing your walk in the park.

I laughed at your riddle. I used to walk for exercise and then -- first I took up bird-watching and then digital photography, neither of which is at all calculated to provide good exercise for my body. But both are good for the soul!!

Della said...

What a beautiful walk in the park! A perfect way to spend an hour :D

It's getting to be so warm that we will have to do our walking in the mornings. It's blazing hot today, and in the 90's!
The pool is a good place to be right now :D
Very warm southern hugs,

Lovely Park! I think I'll take Sidekick Scott to the park only a few miles from my home next week. Good advice!

Beautiful walk. You did not climb the fence I know.

Freckled Hen said...

Your blue sky looks so lovely, it has been gray here for too many days to count. I can't wait for a pretty day to trek outside!

Becca said...

That's beautiful! Only a few more weeks and I'll have lots of pretty parks to explore in Washington!
