On the Way to Cincinnati-Inniswood Metro Gardens!

On the way down to Cincinnati last month, Bonnie, my American herbal companion, and I stopped by Westerville, outside Columbus to visit Inniswood Metro Gardens.  A beautiful park like setting with lots of places for photographers to take photos of brides and grooms.  It was a chilly day and yet the park was busy with pre-wedding activity.  Above the portico or arbor near the rose garden with some of the roses that were in bloom.  We were surprised at just how many were blooming.

A Lovely Herb Garden to Savor in Every Season
Bonnie and I always say that our best time is between 10 AM and 2 PM.  We can make a stop at an herb farm and shop for plants, have a bit of lunch and then do a bit of extra herbal shopping on the way home.  We were very fortunate to stop and see the wonderful herb garden at Inniswood Metro Gardens.  It takes a whole lot of volunteers to keep this garden going.  Great job to the women and possibly men of the Central Ohio Unit of the Herb Society of America.  It was a joy to see this garden.  We look forward to going back in the summer some year.  I'll talk about the rest of the gardens we visited in the next post.

Just wanted to mention that The Herbal Husband and I saw the movie, The Sessions with John Hawkes, Helen Hunt and William H. Macy today.  It was very well done.  Lots of necessary nudity.  Maybe not for everyone.  I think Mr. Hawkes and Ms. Hunt and maybe even Mr. Macy may get Oscar nods.  Mr. Macy plays a priest which is quite the opposite from his role in the TV series, Shameless!  It was a beautiful day here in the 'Burgh.  Hope you had a great day.  Talk to you later.
