springtime at boston's public garden

Weeping-Willow-Tree

























it was so quiet during boston's 'rush hour' I kept looking at my watch in disbelief trying to understand why people were walking at such a calm normal pace. maybe it was because I was on a sort of vacation but it seemed to me that most people in this great city actually take the time to stop and smell the roses.
today's post is dedicated to shadow shot sunday. if you want to join in the fun, please visit  hey harriet's shadow shot sunday meme. a big thank you to tracy for hosting shadow shot sunday.

Beautiful. I have fond memories of our "looking at Boston colleges weekend" with our kids. Hope you had as good a time as we did!

The old willow almost looks thirsty, bowing down to the water like that!


A SEEKER OF SHADOWS

A seeker of shadows, they say,
Will keep her eyes peeled night and day
For resident shades
That haunt the dark glades
And never come outside to play.

What a beautiful photo. I can't get enough of it. We know spring is coming here, but it's a long wait.

Your pictures of Boston are making me homesick. That's where I'm originally from. The cake shot is making me hungry for a bite. I really enjoyed browsing through your blog.

This reminds me so much of the landscape behind my Bayou apartment complex. Its beauty heals me after long days of work, Roland

Wow this is really so beautiful, i feel like sitting there and just read a book. We are deprived of that scene in this country, as we dont have that willow!
