Above is one of my favorite quilts from the wonderful Quilts and Color exhibit at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. I just love the way the "shadows" are created with darker pieces of cloth continuing the "sunshine" pattern. See Lorianne's blog post from our visit. And my set of photos here.
D and I went out to see the lilacs at the Arnold Arboretum, having skipped the annual Lilac Sunday (traditionally on Mother's Day) because the lilacs weren't open yet. Instead of being too early, we were a bit too late as most of the lilacs were spent by this weekend, although a few were still in fragrant bloom. It was still a beautiful day (see a few pix from the visit here).
From the Arboretum, we decided to have a late lunch, or I guess an early dinner, on the waterfront. So we took the T over to the Seaport, had some good Mexican food (indoors since it got chilly, but alas in an overly noisy and understaffed eatery), then walked back along the harbor. When it's stays light so long it's easy to forget it's getting late.
Almost 37,000 flags were planted on Boston Common this weekend in honor of as many Massachusetts men and women who have died serving their country from the Revolutionary War to the present. The shadow side of the holiday weekend.
