The flowers win!

The Botanic Garden of Smith College (luckily has inside space in a conservatory and) holds a spring bulb show for two weeks every March, starting on the first weekend of the month. I carefully watched the weather forecast last week, choosing to visit on Tuesday. It was a no precipitation day sandwiched between two nor'easters, one a rain event, one a snow event.

If I lived closer to Northampton I think I would visit every day. I've been craving color and flowers; this show was a perfect foil for late winter blues.

The predominant flowers were tulips and daffodils. There were smaller number of other spring flowers as well. Here are a few to whet your appetite for spring.
