White Dogwood and Butterweed Video

One of the highlights of May 5 or Cinco De Mayo was the afternoon drive through one of our favorite parks.  This park can be found in a Google Map search at: Oak Openings.  I’ll include mapping details at the bottom of this post.. It  is always so peaceful driving through this region of Northwest Ohio.  Check out my video below:

White Dogwood and Butterweed Image Collection

I fell in love with this roadside.  It really is amazing how the same road transforms each week during the growing season with new colors from native plants and trees.  Both my husband and I are inspired by this landscape.  In the section below I want to share just a small gallery of the images I snapped with my iphone.  The video on this page was just a quick capture to show you upclose the experience.
