A few hours in the Arnold Arboretum turned up a wide variety of flowers and other photo opportunities. These are some of my favorites.
I was taking pictures of this empty nest, and every time I got closer to it, a robin behind me started to freak out. I finally decided she probably had eggs in there, so I didn’t get any closer. When I walked away, she made a beeline for the nest!
We finally came upon a few signs of spring in the Arnold Arboretum, in Boston, this weekend. Magnolia blooms peeking out from their pods? Boom. Done.
Magnolias, pussy willows, bees and crocuses (crocii?). As always, click on any picture to see it larger (click on all the pictures – you’ll want to see them larger. You want to buy them? OK. Wait – that website’s not functional yet. Send me a message, or comment, and we’ll work something out).
I was seriously neglecting the blog last spring/early summer, so I’m looking at the archives to see what you might have missed. Here are a few of my faves from a walk through Arnold Arboretum. As always, click on the photos to embiggen.
Those of you who follow my blog know that I love to take pictures of flowers, so you can imagine my excitement to see that Ailsa has chosen blossom as this week’s travel theme. Here are some recent blossoms:
Now, THAT is a lot of pink! I normally try to get a wider variety of colors when I shoot flowers, but it seems like the early spring blooms are overwhelmingly pink (except tulips, but I posted a recent – different color – tulip here, along with some other pink flowers, so this purple/pink is all I have left).
In a few short hours, I’ll be on an airplane, headed to meet my professor and classmates for a study abroad program. If you all behave yourselves, I might manage a few posts from Cali, Colombia in the next couple weeks (the most foreign place I’ve ever traveled is Boston, so this could get interesting. Did you know that one dollar is more than 2,000 pesos? That’ll be fun math!).
