the old saying is true - you need another vacation after vacation. i'm trying to get back into my routine!
so tonight, i've made my first cup of lemon monarda tea harvested from my prairie...
and its time to share some vacation pictures of boston and maine.

we went to the granary burying ground where some famous historical figures are buried -
such as john hancock, samuel adams and paul revere.
|spring time in boston|
the weather was wonderful! we took the t-rail everywhere and then walked everywhere.

patiently waiting for their master.

we really enjoyed the boston museum of fine art - my favorites
were the Copleys, Sargents and Monets. there was also an
excellent alex katz exhibit. he's in his mid 80's now and still painting!
|'the daughters of edward darley boit' by sargent|
standing in front of this john singer sargent painting was pretty amazing!
i've only seen it in books,,, and now 'in person' with the actual
japanese vases included. the family took these vases back and forth
with them to paris and america.
|'madonna and child with angel' by sandro boticelli|
we were 'floored' by the isabella stewart-gardner museum!
it's probably one of the most beautiful museums in the world,,,
the most opulent,,, and most 'well-stocked' with famous paintings/artists. (period.)
i had the most magical moment when i saw my first
sandro boticelli painting in person! this was a dream come true!
he's one of my top favorite artists and the museum had three of his works.
no pictures whatsoever were allowed. thanks to the internet though
i can share these exquisite images
i will try to finish up the trip pics tomorrow night.
