Swan Boats in Boston, garden, spring tradition

In 1877 they appeared.
The Swan Boats of Boston.
133 years later,
they still glide on the water in Spring.
How many traditions last that long these days?

Magnolia Snow

In the next town,
a 100 year old Magnolia
with sinuous, curvy limbs
stands as solid and tall as an Oak.
Like fallen snow with a touch of pink,
100s of blossoms coat the tree,
sprinkle the petals,
then blanket the ground below.
A welcome snow in April.

Girl in Field, best things in life are free, Tax Day song

A song for Tax Day:
"Flowers in spring
The robins that sings
The sunbeams that shine
They're yours and they're mine
Love can come to everyone
Best things in life
They're free."
Song by B.G. DeSylva, Lew Brown, and Ray Henderson for the musical "Good News" 1927

Study in Black

Dressed to the nines.
In shadow of light.
A martini.
A moment.
