Springtime in the Public Garden

Not soon enough, we will be rewarded with the wonderful sights and sounds of springtime in New England. There is no better place to experience this than in Boston’s Public Garden. An oasis in the middle of the bustling city, the first public botanic garden in America is known for its array of beautiful plantings. Other points of interest such as the lagoon, suspension bridge and monuments add to the allure of this park. Year after year, the colors of the cheerful pansies, tulips, hyacinths and budding trees replace the anemic winter landscape. -Leanne Burden Seidel and Lisa Tuite
