Boston Common -- the gardens here are a mix of ponds, playing fields, open spaces, statues, and mixed flowers, some annuals and some perennials like these roses still in bloom in autumn. The lamp posts show its well lighted after dusk but provide a focal point for viewing the garden design. Red is a good contrast to green. The rounded shrubs help break up the vertical lines of the weeping willow and lamps. A fun place to visit.
