This morning I took a walk around the Los Angeles County Arboretum. I'm determined to lose those 10 pounds I gained back, especially now that I have a story in this upcoming Chicken Soup for the Dieter's Soul. Walking around a garden is so much better than walking around my block, although it sometimes distracts me with scenes like this one I took today.
I have a membership in Descanso Gardens which means I also can go to the Arboretum and various other gardens free. I should probably belong to the Arboretum instead since it is a lot closer, but I joined Descanso Gardens because I still have dreams of my haiku group doing an event at the Japanese Garden there.
