Allium

My all-time favorite flower is most likely allium.
How can you not love tall purple puffy blooms!
The Public Garden is always the best place to find a sea of blooms.
Every path ends in a burst of blooms, standing tall, bright and vivid!
One of the best parts of spring!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 23

The Good:
Boston's Pride was this weekend - the city goes all out and I love that I live in an area that shouts "love is love" from the rooftops- or City Hall Plaza in this case!

The Random:
I get a lot of random spam calls. Usually from my area code from NJ. This was a new one...

The Fun:
We had our big color war field day on Wednesday! The weather was perfect, the kids had a blast, and it surely put a kick in the end of year fun!

Park Art 2019

Every May and early June, in one of the riverway parks by my apartment there is a sculpture installation. I love going over to check out the pieces and finally made over there last week.

 This year's pieces were quite different and pretty out of the box. I think my favorites are the strung "beads" between the trees and giant wind chimes! Can't wait to see what they have there next year.
