Smith Gardens

Going back to visit my adorable hometown of Oakwood, Ohio always feels like a mini-vacation to me.  The beautiful town is filled with quaint shops, historic homes, amazing restaurants, and gorgeous parks.  Although there are a lot of places in Oakwood I love, my favorite has to be Smith Gardens, which boasts one of the "finest tiny public gardens in Ohio" {Ohio Magazine}.  Last time I was home we decided to have a picnic in the garden, and to our delight when we arrived the tulips were in full bloom.  Spring is such a magical yet fleeting time, full of life and new beginnings.  I always try to keep my camera in-hand to make sure I can capture the beautiful blooms that almost seem to disappear before my eyes, at least until next spring!

Side Note: I know I am a bit late to the game, but as most of you know Google Friend Connect will soon be shut down.  Follow Dreams in HD on Bloglovin here!

  11. Unfortunately as the sun shines on your solar panels, they inevitably get heated up.
    These systems differ in sizes, so make sure you buy the right size that will warm your pool water.
    And humans have owned solar energy for thousands of years.
