Exploring Cleveland’s Secret Gardens

One of the best things about this surreal summer of 2020 has been the opportunity to get more acquainted with the extraordinary outdoor venues of the greater Cleveland area! Last Friday we spent the morning at one of my favorites, the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
