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 I’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

It Begins Again

It’s hard to believe what a crazy year we all had. I’m waxing nostalgia on this Covid year because this week last year all of my son’s schools shut down. And now this week, they are opening 5 days a week again. Looking back on the last 12 months, I

Gardening observations: PESTS

Just a few weeks ago, the garden was lush and manageable and green. And so far, most of the garden is growing well. The beds are starting to burst and it’s only early July. The goods news: the garden is growing and this year so far I’ve been able to

Flower Power

The best way to deal with the winter blues? Go to a greenhouse! And my city has the best greenhouse: Franklin Park Conservatory. I spent the afternoon off the other day to feel some warm air and to get back to some creativity. Here are some of the photographs I

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

Flowers and Hidden Frogs

A couple weeks ago, during a gloriously, warm October day I ventured out to get some pictures of the last fall flowers. For Columbus, Ohio locals, Inniswood Park is always my “go-to” flower park when I’m gettin’ the feelin’ for nature shots. That day, I got some other friends within
