No visit to Boston in our glorious springtime is complete without strolling through the Arnold Arboretum. This sprawling, lush park was established in 1872, and is owned by Harvard University. Just hop off the Orange Line train at the Forest Hills “T” stop, and you’re there!
Skip along with me, now, as we ogle the rainbow colors of May in the Arboretum: the arguable crown jewel of Boston’s Emerald Necklace park system.
2020 Update: Though we’ve been told to stay home (juggling parenting and working) and not see Lilac Sunday in person for Mother’s Day, I hope these photos can bring you a taste of it from the comfort of your own couch!
Gorgeous, eh? So which of these blooms would you most yearn to take home?
