Springtime in the Public Garden

Not soon enough, we will be rewarded with the sights and sounds of springtime in New England. There are few places better to experience this than in Boston’s Public Garden. An oasis in the middle of the city, the first public botanic garden in America is known for its array of beautiful plantings. Year after year, the colors of pansies, tulips, hyacinths, and budding trees replace the anemic winter landscape. Points of interest include the lagoon, suspension bridge, and monuments.

Above, May 10, 1925: A couple strolled across the artistic iron suspension bridge that was built in 1867. The bridge spans the pond on which the youth of Boston skated in winter and rode in the famous Swan Boats during the summer. See the full gallery here.
