Boston, Massachusetts: Another photo in my springtime Boston Public Garden series - a great time of year there with different colored tulips everywhere. This photo is a favorite of mine as it reminds me of an impressionist painting.


The Public Garden was established in 1837 as the first public botanical garden in the U.S. It consists of twenty-four acres (97,000 m²) of landscape that was once a salt marsh. Together with the Boston Common, these two parks form the northern tip of the Emerald Necklace, a long string of parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.
