Spring, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Spring is vibrant in Boston's Public Garden.  The temperatures are creeping up, the buds are popping, the sun is shining, and life is good.

Hanging out in the Public Garden.

The famous pedal-powered swan boats are plying the waters of the pond in the Public Garden.

Not to bring up that recently forgotten subject but, this cherry tree looks more like it's covered from a really full and deep snowstorm - only it's not cold outside!

Elsewhere nearby, the Church of the Covenant peeks out from behind this bush along Berkeley Street looking north toward Newbury Street. 

Magnolia blossoms frame this flag on Commonwealth Avenue, still flying at half-mast after the Marathon bombings.

It's mostly too early for the bulk of the tourists.  Area residents are out and about enjoying the beauty of Boston's public spaces - pretty much the communal "backyard."  The Public Garden is adjacent to the Boston Common.  The Garden was founded in 1837 as the first botanical garden in the United States.
