Cicadas in Columbus Ohio

I’d not experienced the cicadas incessant sounds until I came out here for a visit. The trees are filled with the red eyed insects. It’s been 17 years since they’ve emerged. Here an article about this species, not to be confused with the annual cicadas.

Listen to Cicadas in Columbus Ohio a short video -you can hear them and see them flying around

They are everywhere.

Inniswood Metro Garden

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.
