Here's a general view taken from the central bridge over the pond.
This flowering plum was growing right near the bridge.

One of the famous swan boats.
The other big tourist attraction in the Public Garden is the "Make Way for Ducklings" statues. I don't know offhand whether this one is Jack, Kack, Lack, Mack, Nack, Ouack, Pack, or Quack!
Another duckling. The statue of Mrs. Mallard is always mobbed, with both adults and children posing for photos while sitting on her back.
The real-life Mr. and Mrs. Mallard.
And a Canada goose, too. In spite of the signs warning people not to feed the birds, it seemed to be a popular pastime and all the waterfowl were patrolling for handouts.
Not far from the duckling statues, this huge cherry tree was also drawing many admirers. (At least, I think it's a cherry.)

This tree's pretty pink blossoms were also drawing a lot of visitors.
Besides the flowering trees, at this time of year the mass displays of tulips are other big attraction in the Public Garden.
Classic red tulips.
Here's a bed of multicolored tulips.

These pale yellow tulips had big flowers on small plants with purple-spotted leaves.
