There are so many great ways to get out and enjoy the beauty all around us. Bob and I got out for a paddle on Lake Winona this afternoon.

This was a monumental paddle for me. Two months ago, I broke my elbow in a biking accident when Bob and I were biking to Fountain City. (More about that another time.) Today, we were paddling a short, easy one on the lake to see if I could join him for the Mike Munson & Ben Weaver Concert on a sand bar later in the afternoon.
Here are a few of the beautiful plants on or near the water.
These look like a hibiscus. They have a soft fragrance. And cat tails
These pretties may be swamp milkweek.
This little orchid type plant grows near the shore of the lake.
A little bud
Yellow water lilies
Oh, the water and paddling were lovely. No sand bar concert for me today. Another day soon. More strength and healing on deck.
