Every May, Lilac Sunday is a Boston tradition celebrating the five-week flowering of the botanical garden’s premier collection, but my favorite time to visit is at the height of snow season. Walking through a wintry scene of ice-brushed treetops and white fields is a refreshing escape from cooped-up city blocks.
