Inniswood Metro Garden is in Westerville Ohio.
It was a beautiful Spring day to explore the park with Laura and Charlie.
Two sisters, Grace and Mary Innis, donated their 37 acre estate and there’s a Sisters’ Garden dedicated to their memory. Either the treehouse or the brick walled Secret Garden might have been Charlie’s favorite place to play.
These Hellebore were planted by my friend Joan. They bloom every year without a lot of attention from me.
Bee photography in my friend Joan’s garden has been an interesting experience. Joan keeps two hives of bees. When we walk through the garden she knows which bees are hers. When I left the first time she gave me a jar of honey
My return trip to Joan’s I took her a hat of apple butter. As we sat outside, I was determined to photograph a bee on the purple asters. The bees wouldn’t land for long and my hand wasn’t that steady, coming up with lots of blurry shots.
My mother loved asters. Joan said last year she inadvertently cut them down to the ground thinking it a weed. And look at the gorgeous flowers now.
