The winter garden

Is there anything prettier in the quiet dead of winter than a snowy public park? All those incredible bones of the garden—the trees, hedges, grasses, benches, sculpture, fountains, fences etc.— all look particularly lovely with a monochromatic canvas of alabaster snowflakes. Even the metal work of the trash bin (above, right) looks intriguing.  (all photos, Diane Carnevale)

I like this photo (above) of City Square park in Charlestown because the winding road leads your eyes past filigree trees, left and right, to three prominent spires; the Zakim Bridge in the far back, the center of a huge fountain with a gold weathervane on top, and a classic Charlestown gas light.
