Spring in the City

Filed under: M's post — Tags: , — 2sisters2cities @ 9:34 pm

It seems like all the trees and flowers have started to bloom in the past week in Boston.  It’s been so pretty walking around during my lunch hour to see all the flowers.  Tonight, husband M walked me to my photography class and we came across this beautiful cherry blossom tree:

I wish this tree was outside our condo!

Spring in Boston- Top 10 Things I am Looking Forward To

Filed under: M's post — Tags: , , , , , , , — 2sisters2cities @ 8:33 am

Although it is still not quite spring here in Boston, the slightly warmer weather and longer days are making me thing ahead to spring.   There are definitely a number of things I am looking forward to with the warm weather around the corner.  I wanted to share my favorite spring activities in Boston (in no particular order):

1.  Walking around Castle Island each evening before dinner

2.  Planting my herb garden on my back porch

Hopefully my herb garden will look like this…(Photo Courtesy of -Chad Johnson)

3.  Red Sox game at Fenway

Go Sox!

4.  Walking around the Back Bay during lunch to window shop and check out spring flowers during lunch

Flowers in Copley Square

5.  Reading on the roof deck

Ah roof deck, how I have missed you this winter…

6. Sleeping with the windows open

7.  Walking through the Boston Public Garden to check out the flowers and ducklings

These are actually Marina Bay ducklings, not Public Garden ones…

8.  First boat ride of the season in Boston Harbor

9.  Outside brunch/dinner in Boston

Great way to people watch and soak up the nice weather (photo courtesy of Randy Son of Robert)
