The Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, Boston, is an explosion of color in May and June.
It is a living museum with collections of trees, bushes, shrubs and roses from all over the world.
As you stroll along the paths, be surprised by the vistas around each corner.
Origami Dragonfly 6.26.2017
Listen to the cacophony of birds especially in the early morning.
Be encircled by iridescent dragonflies darting in and out of the marshy areas.
Enjoy the fresh, crisp air.
Sit on a bench. Relax and absorb the magnificent landscape.
If you visit Boston, check out the Boston HarborWalk. This walkway runs around the Boston Harbor and beyond.
You can walk by piers, wharves, beaches and shorelines. There are even free walking tours offered throughout the year.
Saturday was a lovely morning for a Boston HarborWalk on the North End. An unseasonably warm 50 degree day, it was perfect for walking.
Here are a couple of snapshots taken that day.

Money Dolphin 2.27.2017.
Our tour guide was excellent. Leaving from the Long Wharf Marriott, we walked all the way to the little Maritime Museum near the Coast Guard.
When I passed a dolphin sculpture on my way to the meeting point, it inspired me to fold this Money Dolphin designed by Jeremy Shafer.
