Springtime in the Arboretum

Flowers were bloomin' in the Arnold Arboretum this Spring...



Flowers of the unique Dove Tree...It also is called the handkerchief tree due to how its flowers hang.  They appear to be like the wings of doves.  The story of how the tree was first acquired from western China by a Harvard explorer/horticulturist around 1900 is pretty interesting.  



These crocuses were the first Spring flowers to appear.


The Shapiros and Z Zankel soak up the divine scents of the Arboretum's lilacs.

Outside of the Arboretum and along the Promenade of the Charles River

And further afield, a strange finding of glass bottles in the middle of the forest out at Blue Hills Reservation.
