Flowers at “The Banks”

In Cincinnati, there’s a great spot for flower watching.  It’s down off Pete Rose Way, just on this side of that old suspension bridge.  It’s called “The Banks” and you must visit it with me.

A view with a view.

A view with a view.

A bit of disorder.

Let’s see that again, a bit closer.

Aspiring to be that.

A spider dancing on the edge of insanity.

Strike a pose.

Jackson’s favorite.

In love with water.

Forgetting what’s in the distance.

Coming in for a soft landing.

Soft touch.

“Welcome one and all!”

Haunted by red and yellow.



The gang’s all here.

“Wait for me!”

Real beauty.

Beautiful place.

Take a bow.

  1. when you see the built environment as a backdrop and closer are the best part of nature..the lovely flowers for everyone to feast their eyes on..makes building and bridges are place to be..wandering away or reaching to..say it with flowers ..everyday

  2. I love red, and red roses as well. They mean love exist, but unfortunately I’m not lucky about love.

  3. I love that old suspension bridge in the background, what a super contrast with beautiful flowers.

  4. I loved the flow from individual flowers to a few more to “take a bow.” That was creative and well done. My favorite picture was pensive. Such a great description..

  6. I particularly like the shot with the waterfall 🙂

    Did you know:

    • There are nearly 1 billion people in the world that don’t have clean, safe water.
    • The women and children that collect water spend approximately 40 billion hours getting it.
    • This detracts from their ability to do other work, or get an education.
    • It takes $20 to supply one of these people with a clean water supply.
    • Each dollar spent provides an economic return of $12.
    • Not least because of the drop in medical care and infant mortality.
    • Can you spare a single dollar for this campaign to bring clean water to 50,000 people?
    • That’s less than a third of the price of a cup of coffee.
    • All money goes to providing water not to admin costs or profit.


    If you can’t spare a single dollar, please pass this message on to others that might.
