Sunday in the Capital City of Little Rock, Arkansas
A day trip was planned in late February 2014 to attend the “Annual Garden Show”. A variety of activities were planned   to make this an adventure that included both physical activity as well as an educational event. The first was a 20 minute walk across the Arkansas River on a bridge between North Little Rock and Little Rock. The bridge is not well traveled by the automobile traffic on Sundays so it was an easy and fun walk. The photos show scenes taken from the middle of the river on the bridge’s pedestrian walkway.

The Garden Show was focused on ideas for decorating gardens for entertainment purpose. There were also speakers covering topics related to children’s gardening activities and personal produce gardening. Included in the photos are arts and crafts and decorating ideas showing flowers used in displays.
