Recently visited Homosassa Springs state park, a great day out to view native Florida. Quaint, entertaining, informative, safe to walk around a boardwalk on the wildlife trail and ideal for children. Written a blog with photos of the experience.

In January we visited the International Market World in Auburndale, Florida, which has a huge market with over 1000 unique vendors which make up the International Market World family of shops!  The farm-fresh produce was an especially good selection with Plant city strawberries and everything else one could imagine.  
While there we went to one of the yearly organised events called The Spirit of the Buffalo Pow Wow which was a $5 entry and open from 10 am to 9 pm on the Saturday.  For the price it was a great exhibit and demonstrations of Native American crafts including archery, Flight of the raptor, with hawks and falcons flying display, dancing displays, an Indian Village with historic artefacts, and native American food. I found the archery talk and demonstration especially fascinating and target shooting from 130 yards with a bow was impressive.
We really enjoyed ourselves at the market and Pow Wow and a great opportunity to soak up the local culture. Highly recommended.
Find out more about events at the International Market website. 

Inserted a few photos showing the Flight of the Raptor display and the archery display.

Following various post on the attractions at Lakeland, Fl, we visited the farmers market which I've posted about, but we also visited Lake Mirror and Hollis gardens which are in the down-town area of Lakeland, nearby to 702 East Orange Street. The gardens were gifted to the city of Lakeland by the Hollis family and contain more than 10,000 flowers and ornamental shrubs, shade trees and a Grand Staircase.
Its a very relaxing location with Lake Mirror in the background, admission is free. We walked around Lake Mirror which is a gentle walk along Frances Langford promenade (a popular movie star and singer who was born in Lakeland)and past colonnades.
We also saw a good variety of wild birds, black swans and a turtle enjoying the December sunshine.

Attached a few photos to illustrate the lake and gardens. Incorporating the gardens and lake into a trip to the farmers market is an enjoyable alternative to the many other Florida attractions.

Following various post on the attractions at Lakeland, Fl, we decided to visit the Farmers market which meets on a Saturday between 8am-2pm at 200 North Kentucky Avenue, Lakeland. Its approximately a 25 minute easy drive on the I4 from Solana resort. The market displays produce from local growers and artisans, with a great selection of fresh produce (much being organic), plants and local handcrafted items, with about 40 stores displaying when we visited in early December 2014. 
I purchased a homemade non-tomato base salsa in a 16 oz pot from sassygirlssalsa made from a selection of different beans (black, pinto, black eyed) peppers, onions,celery, corn and chilli peppers. I went for the hot version; I loved it. 

There was also an opportunity to taste various types of local unprocessed honey from Red roof farms. I opted for the wild flower honey, which is great on its own, or my favourite is on hot oatmeal for breakfast.
Attached a few photos to illustrate the location and displays. Well worth a visit. #lovefl
