This post represents a summary of my first exploration of the Boston Common and the Public Gardens. Since both change with the seasons, I offer a first look from the perspective of late summer or early autumn.

|The Frog Pond|
My roommate and I visited the Common to enjoy a Sunday afternoon lunch we packed with the intent of savoring a beautiful October day while on a park bench. We sat beside the frog pond in the Common, a shallow pool sometimes used for wading in the summer and used as a skating rink during the winter. (Perhaps a future adventure might include skating here!) Not only did we get to enjoy lunch outside, we got to people watch as well!
