Boston's Public Garden was established in 1837 when philanthropist Horace Gray helped set aside land as the first public botanical garden in the United States. The area is fullof plants trees, stues, monuments and a variety of activities throughout the year. A popular summer activity is to ride on the Swan boats.

My last visit to Boston was during the winter. The park had plenty of snow on the ground and it was beautiful. I love snow and taking a nice walk in winter is one of my favorite activities. On this recent walk we came upon a statue of a Duck with Ducklings which we found looked amusing set against the snowy backdrop. The sculpture is called: Make Way for Ducklings by Nancy Schön.
