Interesting photo. Photographer does an excellent job of evoking a specific mood. Fortunately in reality, as I've seen visiting the park the past few days, it's not so grim. The park has been filled with people enjoying themselves, musicians playing music, the trees and grass are still green, birds are still chirping and squirrels continue to scamper to about.
Obviously the photographer is a child molester and took this photo with nefarious purposes in mind.
I mean, look at the low angle, the unsuspecting subject, and the SKIRT! Oh my! I'm getting the vapors!
Mostly cleaned up - no major damage inside the garden - looks like just leaves and branches now arranged in small piles. The same can't be said for the huge tree on Beacon across from Cheers (only stump remaining) and the other tree in the Common (still needs to be removed - remains in its entirety blocking the path - though Parks probably has a lot of other priorities this week immediately related to safety).
We've lost a lot of trees in the Common - hope a few of them are in line to be replaced.
The Public Garden did survive Irene relatively unscathed but otherwise it's been a dismal summer and year for the trees of the Garden. Just this summer six trees more than 100 years old have been cut down, three of which date from the Garden's original landscaping (in the allee parallel to Boylston). They were all elm species, cut down because they were dying from disease, Dutch Elm Disease in the case of the three oldest, while Verticillium Wilt claimed at least one of the others. Within the past 12 months another two 100+ year old trees, both willows, were lost to unnamed, non-hurricane storms.
