Make way for ducklings

Posted on May 9, 2018



You may be familiar with the children’s book, “Make Way for Ducklings.” If not, this is a children’s book about a pair of mallard ducks who decide to raise their family on an island in a lagoon at the Boston Public Garden. This is the sculpture, capturing those cute ducklings. Every season, they sport new outfits. Since it is spring, it is appropriate that they are all wearing their new Easter bonnets.

The Boston Public Garden is one of my favorite places in Boston. It was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted as part of the “green necklace,” a series of parks around Boston. It has beautiful flowers, that change with the seasons. Right now, it is filled with tulips.
