We loved seeing the duck sculptures and swans recognized from Robert McCloskey’s classic children’s book, Make Way for Ducklings,at the Boston Public Garden. It is a peaceful place to relax. When we were there, the summer flowers bloomed in bright hues of purple, yellow and red.  And, of course, ducks made their presence known too.
