Where I've Been

I've haven't done a lot of sewing, crafting or blogging this month, but I hope to have a post related to those things soon. In the meantime, for part of the time I've been missing, Boston is where I've been, and I took these photos. City skyline taken from ferry:


Does anyone know the name of the flower in this photo taken in one of the many lovely city parks (double click for the most detail)?


The USS Constitution at the Boston Navy Yard. I learned this is "the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world":

Barbara, the name of the flowers is Alliums. A neighbor had them in her garden and I always liked them. It looks like you had a great time in Boston. Your pictures are beautiful. Maybe by August we can see each other. Best wishes to Terry on his retirement.

enjoyed seeing your photos on the "big screen" as opposed to the camera :)

I think they are allium also. They are in the onion/garlic family, but oh so pretty.

Hi Barbara, have you found the name of your flower?
When I was in New Jersey visiting my nana Stewart a wierd creature landed on my head. I didn't know until I went to the loo and took my cap off. So even though this creature looking like a frog with wings was large, it must of been light. I took my cap down to nana and asked her what it was(not being forn usa I thought she'd know). She didn't. After several hours we let it go. The next day a professor was in the papers showing this creature, it had flew away and dissapeared. A couple hundred miles and landed on my head. O I wish we would of kept it a little longer. I could of come to america and had my little bit of fame lol. Today I don't know what it was called!
Arrgh well, somethings are just ment to be a suprise, he, he,he!
Hugs!

Nice photo's, I hope you had a great time. The Alliums are just beautiful. I've always wanted to grow them, but I was either in a very cold climate or hot climate where they wouldn't grow.

It sounds like you had a good time. Trips are fun but exhausting. Thanks for always commenting on my blog.
