Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds

I decided to visit a new place, Squantum Point Park, in Quincy.  It was a very urban park, not terribly pretty, and with lots of dogs walking (and swimming).  There were nice views of the city.

There were lots of fruit trees there, and I suspect it would be a good place for fruit-eating birds in winter.  I'd rather not think about winter just yet though!

In the afternoon, I attempted to visit the Mass Horticultural Gardens at Elm Bank, but with two weddings going on, most of the gardens were out of bounds.  For a backup plan, I headed over to Tower Hill Botanic Garden.
