walkie wednesday

hi every bloggie!

Okay! Are you ready to join me for a walkie? I have a great one for today. When I went to the 2dogs2000miles event at the Boston Commons, I had to cross the street and walk thru the Boston Public Gardens. It's a must when in the city. Ready here we go.

To cross over to the gardens, I traversed my way thru the commons. I walked right thru to the infamous and my MOST favorite part of Boston, the FROG POND area. Yep. Can you believe it? No wonder I live here. I posed right in front of the Frog Pond Carousel!

Then I took a peek at the play area for the lil pup frogs. I wasn't allowed in there.. geesh!

So I thought and pondered a minute. Oh.. look who's next to me. Thinker Peeper. I wonder what's on his mind.

I made my way across the busy street and entered the garden. It seemed like the 4th of July, they had firecracker blooms everywhere!

And a must do in the Public Gardens is see the swan boats! Tadaaaaah!

I was super hot so I took a dip in that swan boat pond area. I don't think I'm suppose to do that..oh well. Then walked around to see it up closer. Seems this swan thing is a hoax. It's a human dressed as a swan. Go figure.

  12. Norwood, you have the most beautiful places to walk! I'd have been worried that one of those giant frogs would've started talking to me or something. Thanks for sharing all those cool pictures!


  13. Woos Norwood! What a fun place to go fur a walkie, and I am sure it is cooler there, than here... I like woo froggies, we have a lot right in our backyard, but do not try and eat them, they taste yucky! So why do Moms always make us stop sniffing when that is what we are our fur???
    Have a Wonderful day!

  16. Woof! Woof! Great walkie the gardens ... its good that they allow dogs to the garden. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  17. Are those firecracker blooms for REAL? They are so perfectly round like a ball! A big ball!!! Doesn't that ball have any leaves? We are puzzled. And impressed.

    And now we're thinking we may need to add the Public Gardens to a potential list of places to visit this summer. Whaddya think?

  18. Norwood, we think they must have designed that park just for you. We loved the froggie on the carousel. And all the beautiful flowers. What a gorgeous day you had for that great walk.
