Montreal Botanical Gardens

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Most of Montreal’s Botanical Gardens were under a few inches of snow, but their greenhouses were open, and we had a magical afternoon wandering through the various fairy tale lands with gorgeous colors, textures, sounds and smells.

Tanglewood

We had never been to Tanglewood before, and a few weeks ago, we got tickets to see Yo-yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. It was a beautiful evening, and it was an absolutely unforgettable concert.

Becca took us to one of her favorite places to walk … we walked the whole way around Beaver Lake, then wandered through the bird sanctuary before heading back to the house to relax.

Sunset over the Rockies

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

As we were saying our good-byes to family heading back to the Denver airport, we noticed that the sky had cleared up a bit and the sun was setting over the Rockies in the distance. Hard to capture, but really beautiful.

Leafy Crafts

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

My inner 8-year old needed an arts and crafts project, so I decorated a box with pretty autumn leaves. While walking along Baystate Road during my lunch break, I collected several lovely leaves all in excellent condition. I flattened them a bit, then mod-podged them to a box I had lying around just waiting to be decorated. So pleased with myself 🙂

New Hampshire Leaves

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

We wanted to see some colorful New Hampshire leaves, and it had been too long since we’d seen Sara and Eric, so we made some last-minute plans and drove to Keene, NH. We had an incredible brunch at the Stage Restaurant, wandered around for a bit, then headed over to Mt. Pitcher and walked to the top for some incredible views!

Fenway Victory Gardens

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

I had about an hour to kill before our pre Yom Kippur dinner, and I needed to clear my head after a long week, so I took a walk around the Fenway neighborhood and found myself wandering through the Fenway Victory Gardens: “the oldest continuously operating Word War II Victory Gardens in the United States, spanning 7.5 acres with over 500 gardens.” Who knew?

The gardens are part of a park that’s about half way between Boston University and the Gardner Museum … two places that are a 15 minute walk apart, and where I have spent a lot of my time in the past 8 years … and yet I have never wandered yet another one of Boston’s incredibly little hidden gems.

The Fenway Victory Gardens are truly beautiful and bizarre. It’s one little secret garden after another along narrow dirt paths, each garden with it’s incredibly unique and often strange qualities. You can feel like you’re alone and lost (in a good/peaceful way) among the endless rows of gardens, and yet you can hear traffic not too far away, you can see nearby apartments, and you can see nearby landmarks such as the Prudential Tower. The contrast made this oasis of calm and quiet even more beautiful. In many cases, it’s clear that the gardens are not just places to grow plants and produce, but also places for peaceful personal reflections. Many of the gardens featured wandering paths, sitting nooks and an enormous variety of personal touches.
