The small city of Oakwood, on the south border of Dayton, Ohio, sponsors an annual garden tour. This year was the first time my Nikon and I attended, enjoying a warm, sunny morning wandering at leisure through beautifully landscaped estates, pretty neighborhoods with small shady yards and the sound of fountains and lawn sprinklers.

Despite its closeness to the city of Dayton, the small city of Oakwood has a number of small parks that are oases of quiet and green space. This spring was the most impressive for the display of wildflowers in the various parks - Hills & Dales ( one of the Five Rivers MetroParks ) , Elizabeth Gardens, Friendship Park and Loy Gardens.. Photo ops abound.
