Cercis Canadensis – Eastern Redbud
No Longer Standing
You might remember my August 2022 post of Dead Trees Standing Although there were three photos in the post, one tree was in Columbus. I noticed that the two dead trees in the park across the street are no longer there. They must have taken them down while I was out of town as I surely would have heard the operation.

Taken less than a week apart -the same two trees.

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
(Or maybe you’re experiencing them yourself where you live and don’t need to listen)
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.
