Boston Public Garden at night by James Sutherland

About three weeks ago James Sutherland snapped and shared this beautiful photo of the Boston Public Garden. Since then the Public Garden has transformed as the trees have flowered and the buds have been replaced with leaves, but I loved this photo with Boston’s Back Bay off in the distance, seemingly enveloped in fog.

Lawn on D is now open

Boston public park, Southie Park

Lawn on D opened Monday, May 1, 2017 

One of Boston’s coolest parks, Lawn on D, opened this Monday, May 1, 2017 and as with each year it seems like the park offers something new to attract people to this patch of green surrounded by concrete.

Probably the biggest change (for the better) is that the Lawn on D now has a liquor license through their full-service bar, starting today, Thursday, May 4th. No surprise that the addition of alcohol has also led to an upgrade and changes with food options so check it out this weekend.

Large Chess Set at Hotel Brava in Buzios, Brazil
