Hope you enjoyed the brief tours of the Harvard University’s Glass Flowers exhibit. If you are in Boston, this is a must see. Another must visit is the MIT Museum.

  2. Happy New Year Norma! I wasn’t familiar with the glass flowers at Harvard, so this was very interesting. How are you faring with this polar vortex? Today it was a balmy -10, so things are improving from earlier this week. How about for you? Hopefully you’ve kept yourself nice a warm with some hearty soups and stews this week. Looking forward to staying in touch this year. Starting to think about my menu for Chinese New Years, since it is in January this year! Will you be hosting any family/friends?

    Well, it did take a little patience and clicking to come and say ‘hello’, but I have always found that clicking on the blogger’s name is failsafe 🙂 !! Sorry you had the frustrating problem!! But thank for adding this part three for a wonderful introduction to the exhibit. Next yeaar may be a travelling year for me, and I shall keep this on my ever increasing ‘bucket list’ 🙂 !

      Hello Eha,
      Boston is a great city, you will love it. Having problem is not a bad thing, I learned from this episode. Lots to learn about blogging and the internet, unfortunately I am a slow learner but I will get there one issue at a time.

  4. I hope this comment shows up {it was probably on my end} but I’m glad you got the site figured out. I hope you and yours had a lovely Holidays. I will have to hunt down something like this near where I live, looks fun!

  5. How beautiful this must have been! I love flowers so to see the sculptural beauty of glass flowers would be amazing! I’ll need to add this to my bucket list! xx
