Highway Beautification: Ohio Style

Posted by on Aug 17, 2011 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Another stop we made on our visit to Springfield, Ohio was the annual Garden Fair. Let me just say, this was no “garden variety” garden fair. While there were the usual specimens … shade varieties, variegated versions, plants from the 1800’s, and even an expert on the genus and species of the various weeds that plague or please a gardener… there were some things we saw that truly have their roots in the midwest and would never survive the transplant to the tri-state area.
