Show and tell

Since it is getting colder out (at least for those of us here in the northeastern United States, I thought that I would post some pictures from last Spring (May, I believe) when Ryan and I visited the Boston Public Gardens. Tulips are my favorite flowers...


A bed of beautiful white and red tulips



The front of the Boston Public Garden



Weeping willows overhanging the pond



A swan on the pond



Now that the leaves are turning I should go out and take some photographs of all the lovely trees out there.

I grew up in Florida, so the idea of "seasons" still fascinates me...I even still enjoy the snow. Of course we have only had to deal with it for the last 3 years, so maybe the novelty will wear off on me. I love when it snows after dark, when the ground is sparkling, white and smooth and you look up to see all the small flakes falling from the skies....

Oooh! I love tulips! They always make me smile. I wish they would last longer than they do each spring but I guess we wouldn't appreciate them as much then. Your pictures are lovely!

How gorgeous!

It reminds me of the public garden I go to here :) My favorite place to go.

what lovely tulips. I love the change of the seasons, but sometimes it feels as though they all simply run into each other, for instance - wet summer, reasonable autumn, wet winter, and so it goes!! I would really like hot summers and snowy winters!

I always love the gardens. I haven't been there this year, but it was so nice to see your lovely pictures.

Autumn in New England is one of my favorite times.

As someone else who has spent most of my years in places without seasons, I am also still fascinated.

Great photos!
