Green Grows the Garden by Monnie Ryan

Fellows Riverside Gardens at Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio (USA), is really a group of smaller gardens (including the fabulous Rose Garden that boasts hundreds of blooms each year). This peaceful green area is in between the Rose Garden and the Victorian Gazebo (which is surrounded by its own garden). Mill Creek Park is one of the largest municipally owned parks in the country.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Beautiful greenery and such immaculate upkeep! I love places like this…not too many around my neck of the woods that I know of.

  • Thanks, Dot – some of the park’s 4,500+ acres is “wild,” but there are well-kept areas like this throughout (plus 3 lakes, a couple of golf courses, yadda yadda…) It’s a real treasure, that’s for sure!

    I love how the bench is nestled in it’s private niche with the hedge behind and the lovely green plants (and flowers) between the paths. Nicely done:>) Congratulations on your Daily Pick feature in All Glorious Gardens! Fave

  • Thank you so much!

    Lovely capture Monnie ~ beautifully designed garden :)

  • Thanks, Susie – this is pretty, but to me, it’s far from the most beautiful of the gardens in this park!
