Boston’s Parks and Gardens with Maureen Bovet

Maureen Bovet has been a visiting member of the Lexington Field and Garden Club since 1981.  Exploring parks, gardens, and historic sites is her favorite pastime.  During her talks, she shares photographs of her explorations and the stories that surround them.   Maureen has been dazzling audiences since 2005 with her virtual tours.  A few of the gems this talk will transport you to are:  the Rose Kennedy Greenway; a hidden rose garden in the Fenway; a bird watcher’s paradise filled with specimens of ornamental trees; and the very special Tower Hill Botanical Garden.  The photos present garden visiting opportunities in all seasons and will inspire you to take day trips of exploration right here in the Boston area.
