Springtime activities in Cincinnati

Since I wrote last, I’ve gone to an event at the Cincinnati Zoo called Blooms and Tunes. The Zoo is filled with tulips and there’s live music.

I also led a hike and went on another hike at Spring Grove Cemetery and Devou Park.

I went bicycle riding with a friend and had a bite to eat afterwards. I went to another friend’s home for dinner one evening.

Last night I took my brother and his wife to Playhouse in the Park in Mount Adams, next to downtown Cincinnati. They have a brand new theater and we saw “A Chorus Line”. It was their Christmas gift.

I have a second date this evening for dinner and then to see the butterfly exhibition at Krohn Conservatory. Hope everyone is enjoying the spring weather.

Tunes & Blooms at the Cincinnati Zoo

Going to the Zoo, no matter where you live, is a rather inexpensive way to get some exercise and have fun!  Especially if you have a band to listen to and beautiful flowers surrounding you.  The Cincinnati Zoo has a cool free event (except for parking) in the Spring called “Tunes & Blooms” where you can do exactly that!  I was there a couple of days ago with my friend Dee and was so delighted to happen upon this beautiful Peacock strutting his tail feathers…


The reggae music was fun to dance to provided by “The Cliftones” band.  There were tons of children there enjoying the tunes!


Dee and I saw quite a few people we knew, so while she talked with them, I went in search of some cool photos…
