In March, when the ground is still hard and banks of brown snow cling to the street curb, the Botanic Garden at Smith College hosts their spring Bulb Show. They fill the front two rooms of the green houses with daffodils and tulips in every color, a densely packed preview of the spring to come.
My fellow flower fan, Alison, invited me along since she's a Pioneer Valley local and she knows about these things - fun events and ways to survive the winter. All these photos are of their "permanent collection" and the palm room. I guess I skipped a season and went straight on to summer.
