April 7 - My personal tip - check out places like Hollis Garden in Lakeland FL or the wildlife at Circle B Bar Reserve located at 4399 Winter Lake Road in Lakeland FL. An array of birds such as wading birds, ospreys, bald eagles - great photo opportunities. You can even venture to Lake Wales’ Bok Tower Garden where Russian-born concert pianist Vladimir Svoysky performs works from Frederic Chopin.
