Lenten Rose

The gardens here besides being filled with tulips and daffodils (many that may have been blown away by age and a recent rain storm) also have a great deal of these flowers in different colors.  This week I will be featuring the other blooms that are in season now at the Inniswood Metro Gardens.

Pay Attention

I cannot begin to imagine how many bulbs are planted in the 121 acres here (here being Inniswood Metro Gardens still)  but it’s quite a few! They do a magnificent job of tending to all of the flowers and plants in spite of all of us humans who come to enjoy – and from the looks of this warning sign – possibly trod upon the flowers.  A few years ago I photographed an area here that was absolutely filled with crocus but on this visit that area was warning tape roped off for renovations.

Out standing in their field

The Inniswood Metro Gardens boasts more than 2,000 species of plants along with specialty collections and themed gardens.  Between it and the Park of Roses here in Central Ohio, from spring to fall there is always something and somewhere to photograph.

By the way, get the pun?

There’s a bee in my mouth…

There were honey and other bees buzzing busily in the gardens and I for one was quite happy to see them.

Let’s get daffy

As in daffodils.  If you want to be the other definition for daffy by all means go for it!  Another sign of spring are the arrivals of the daffodils.  Usually they bloom before tulips but in Inniswood they were sharing all of us humans with the tulips…and other flowers.

I’ve never seen a curly daffodil like these before; wonderfully unique.

Tiptoe through the tulips

Today Mother Nature was in a good mood as the weather, while breezy, was sunny and in the low 70’s.  Taking advantage of the day we went to Inniswood Metro Gardens  in Westerville, Ohio.  This beautiful park is a magnet for nature lovers and photographers.  While sitting down in the grass to get tulip shots I paused to let one photographer with his assistant pass by carrying their reflector and softbox.

My overalls that I wear when I know I will be getting very close to nature have muddy knees and back pockets from getting in there for the shots (it has been rainy here as of late) but it was so worth it.  More spring images will be featured this week so please come back and enjoy.

Cosplayers and there are always those evil clowns!

Cosplayers and cosplaying can range from just wearing something simple as a shirt and pants worn by a character in a movie, cartoon, etc. all the way up to people who build their costume and accessories from the ground up.  The idea, in my opinion, is to enjoy doing it no matter what you choose to do or be; how deep into it you may get.  I admire the ones that go hard into their character as in full body painting or heavy costuming but I get squeamish at the ones who can do the wild contacts that change their eyes.  That’s got to hurt!

Our cosplay heroes here are: Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead, Ghostbusters, no idea but very cool, and those darn evil clowns!
