Summer Picnic In The Boston Public Garden

Summer is mostly over, here (although we did just have a nice, warm, sunny day that felt like summer…), but I haven’t finished sharing about summer picnics! To bring a little summer to you, here are a few pictures from a Regency picnic in the Boston Public Garden in August. The Boston Public Garden was established in 1837, so we were a little early, in our Regency dresses.

Laying out the simple fare on our wide expanse of blankets.

Taking a walk around the garden, you run into all sorts of fun picture taking opportunities.

I don’t think I’ve ever been to the garden in August. I have usually been there in May, when all of the flower beds are bursting with tulips. I didn’t realize they change the flower beds to tropical things! I was super surprised!

I think that is George Washington.

Not the usual Boston flora.

Look at the size of those leaves!

And hibiscus!

I feel so tall sometimes…

Squirrel? He was busy scrambling to get food for the winter.

Watching the swan boats pedal by.

It wouldn’t be Boston without the ducks and geese…

    Lovely! Both the gardens and the ladies. You say you feel so tall sometimes, how tall are you?

    • I’m only 5’6″. Not very tall! It’s only when I’m with this group of ladies, since almost every other lady in this group is shorter than I am. 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting!

  2. Beautiful, Quinn. Love your captions, too. Hugs! ~ Mom
