End of Summer at Forest Hills Cemetery, Boston

I had a lovely day with friends strolling around the Forest Hills Cemetery on a beautiful September day. A few of photos from that day.

The drought in Boston has caused Lake Hibiscus shoreline to recede. Very sad.

Earth Day 2015

Happy Earth Day

Back to one of my favorite spots for taking pictures – The Arnold Arboretum, Boston.

The last time I was here the Aboretum was covered with snow and ice. Today the birds were cheeping and the buds on the trees were getting ready to burst. Next week it will look quite different. It was fun to finally be taking pictures in the sunshine. Here are a few:

Spring Soon in Boston?

I took these photos on a docent led walk at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston yesterday. Since I was concentrating on the surroundings I missed most of the docent’s lecture.
