Florida State Parks

After Christmas, JC and I visited the Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park, one of the many beautiful state parks in our area. It is known for its majestic trees and beautiful flowers, especially Camellias and Azaleas.

The day was magnificent, with clear blue winter skies and late afternoon sunshine peeking through the moss in the trees. As we’ve had several freezing days, we weren’t sure what to expect regarding flowers, but were pleasantly surprised to find some still in bloom.

I took tons of pictures and will share some at the end of this post, but let’s get to business first.

Picture Story Challenge

While visiting the park, I found the time capsule in the picture above. I was thirteen years old when it was put into the ground and there’s 25 years to go before it will be opened!

I couldn’t help but think about what might be inside this time capsule. It made me wonder what it would be like to have my own time capsule. Of course, as I like to share, I immediately thought this idea might make a good picture story challenge:~)

So, friends, here’s your chance to create your own time capsule for someone to open in the future. Picture it in your head. Think of the person who opens it in the future. They’re looking at things you chose to put in the box, things you’ve selected about yourself and your life.

Your challenge question:

What would you put in your time capsule and why?

Other questions you might consider:

What year would you select for your time capsule will be opened and why?

What would be the inscription be on your time capsule?

If I didn’t ask the question you desperately want to answer, ask and answer it yourself….just be sure to share it in the comment box.

That’s it. Have fun, be creative and enjoy:~)
