Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Just about every large city of note in the world has an iconic area or street that captures a particular essence and mood. Boston has Commonwealth Avenue in the Back Bay. It begins at the western edge of the Public Garden and stretches westward. Some have compared it to the great boulevards of Paris. In addition to the multi-million dollar properties lining the central park area, Boston University and nearby Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team call the area home. On this unseasonably warm Easter Sunday, the magnolias are exploding in bloom - seems the 60 inches of snowfall last winter really is over until next season. 

And dogs that neither bark, bite, eat nor poop are always welcome.

Some varieties have already begun the petal blizzard.

Not to be outdone, the nearby Public Garden has its Spring show in full display also.  Days like today are enough to make a person forget forever the cold, dark, windy days of January and February just past.
