Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra
 Children at play in the formal gardens at Tanglewood The dedication stone in Tanglewood's formal garden is showing its age Dramatic clouds graced the sky for our visit to Tanglewood The music shed at Tanglewood is long on tradition and short on beauty A new tent at Tanglewood is for hosting donor events
 Near the shed the crowds are dense, even during the reheasal we attended where the shed itself was only half full Tanglewood's rich and diverse music may have inspried this tree Long after the end of the rehearsal people lingered to enjoy the balmy afternoon Farthest from the music shed, Tanglewood overlooks the waters of Stockbridge Bowl
