The Macro Bowl at Root in Allston, MA is made with organic golden quinoa, pickled carrot, kale, chickpeas, nori and avocado. The citrus miso vinaigrette and spicy gochujang aioli really make this bowl shine! Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts is a beautiful spot to see plantings, and bird life especially during spring migration. The gate opens at 6:30 am for birders. There is a smart phone audio tour available. Along with birds, and landscaping, there are an infinite variety of architectural gems. The eye of the pond Washington Tower, located inside the Mount Auburn Cemetery was built by Jacob Bigelow in 1852 to 1854. The view from the top affords a panoramic view of Boston. The Cemetery draws many types of visitors - those interested in the notable buried there (some include: Buckminster Fuller, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Abraham Maslow, and B. F. Skinner), the diverse landscape plantings which include 16,000 plants, and the wildlife (frogs, turtles, coyotes and migratory birds).
It's still a working cemetery, so be mindful of some of the general rules which are posted at the gates. One of the many beautiful buildings in this beautiful cemetery. Here's how Spring says hello. 💕
#Springfun Fountain by artist Laura Baring at Maher Field, an offshoot of the Fresh Pond Reservation path system. Look for it next time you go around the lake. Red Lentil is one of my favorite go-to restaurants for vegan food in the Boston area. This Thai peanut soba noodle salad was amazing! It's made from chilled soba noodles, carrots, red peppers, cilantro, bean sprouts, green onion, fresh greens and an incredible homemade peanut sauce. I will definitely be back for more vegan deliciousness at Red Lentil! #Patterns in iron
Mt Auburn Cemetery is located in Cambridge not far from Harvard Square. It is a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Pieces like this door can be found all over the cemetery, as well as, some very interesting tombs. Genius name. Who doesn't live for either one or both?... Eat in or take out delish soups salads sammies and pastries/cookies/ breads. Mount Auburn’s sphinx a Civil War Memorial. April sky #green Cemetery is beautifully landscaped. Go Bruins! Sunset after the storm One of the prettiest & highly competitive colleges in the Boston area. Before Starbucks & the Internet invaded our daily lives, this used to be the place for work/study/socialize. Sunday night sky Best home-made ice cream by Boston College! Jamaican Rum and cookie dough flavors. Yummmmm! Sunset Moldavian restaurant. Tasty traditional food!❤️ Weird water fountain/bebedero bizarro. Fresh pond. Rows of healthy produce and goods. Bringing healthy to everyday life for the fattening USA.
