A couple things to do in Columbus over the next week:
Today we're heading up to Callaway Gardens for some swimming and biking. But we'll come back in time to enjoy Arts in the Park at Lakebottom Park, where there will be music, local artist vendors and kids activities this afternoon -- from noon to 7 p.m.
Next weekend Keep Columbus Beautiful holds its 2009 Tour of Gardens with a focus on gardens in Midtown. Today's Ledger includes an article I wrote about Mark Porter and Chris Harman's lovely traditional Southern garden, built from scratch in seven years. If you're around next weekend, consider touring some Midtown beautiful gardens and supporting Keep Columbus Beautiful.
