Photo Friday – July 24, 2015

Happy Photo Friday! These photos are from an evening walk Kenneth and I took at Miami Whitewater Forest. The rain from earlier in the day was gone and the humidity was slightly improved. We heard Eastern Towhees, Northern Catbirds and Wood Thrushes and saw lots of gorgeous summer flowers, like these Queen Anne’s Lace (above and below).

I hope you have a chance to enjoy the great outdoors this weekend!

Happy Photo Friday! I took these photos this afternoon while working on some “booktography” shots for my June book reviews.

Have a great 4th of July!

Cincinnati Nature Center + Rowe Woods – Photoblog

IMG_2037

This post has been languishing in my drafts folder for far too long! These photos, taken at the lovely Cincinnati Nature Center and Rowe Woods, are from a trip Kenneth and I took with my Aunt Susie and cousin Emily (plus their adorable, perky dog, Cosmo) last summer.

My aunt and uncle have a family membership, so we joined Aunt Susie, Emily and Cosmo as their guests for an afternoon hike. I’ve heard about the Cincinnati Nature Center for years as it’s a favorite of my Aunt’s and has hosted one of our favorite artists, Charley Harper, many times and continues to sell his work posthumously.

This was Kenneth and my first visit and we had a wonderful time! It’s not a park that we are able to get to very often, but it’s worth a bit of a drive to explore the 16+ miles of hiking trails. It’s one of Cosmo’s favorite places too – every dog we saw looked thrilled to be there!

Enjoy the greenery below!

Spring is here! Spring is here! *happy dance* Spring is here!

Happy Photo Friday! These photos are from a walk Kenneth and I took at Shawnee Lookout. We saw Mayapple, Spring Beauty, violets, Pawpaw flowers, Sessile Trillium and Jack-in-the-Pulpit. We also listened to Red Bellied Flickers drumming on trees and watched a wake of Turkey Vultures effortlessly gliding on warm air thermals.

Spring in Ohio is lovely – get out there and savor it!
