Unlike our trip to Rabbit Hash, Kentucky, last week, it was warm and sunny at Eden Park this week. Strolling couples, kids playing in the ponds, Mothers yelling at them "DON'T", joggers, picnickers, and too many cars driving through.

We had a warm winter, but it was COLD the day I checked out Cherokee Park, here in Liberty Township. Sun was breaking through intermittent clouds with snow flurries. Got some useful photos.

Daily Watering

The well groomed homes along Riverside Drive in Covington are that way for a reason. The home owners have dedicated crews out grooming and pampering their yards on a regular basis. Beautiful homes with beautiful grounds.
