Franklin Park Conservatory

Hands down, the Conservatory is still the city’s best spot. My favorite shots from last week’s excursion.

A Visual Ode to Zinnias

It maybe weird to write an ode to a flower, but this summer I couldn’t have loved my zinnias more. I planted them through seed and watching the vibrant blooms multiply on the little garden plots I cared for in my front yard was a treasure all season, while bees

Like a Walk in the Park

Last month I mentioned that I was hoping to get my groove back with this new Spring season, and Iโ€™m happy to say that the groove is kind of on, in my garden and in my life.  In my garden beds, I planted the sugar snap peas, radishes, arugula and

A Technicolor World

The show is almost done for the season, but the Ohio trees have given a stunning performance to end the year. I was pretty busy the last couple months and wasn’t able to get out too much, but recently I’ve been able to sneak out a couple times to work
