Daffodils at Talcott Greenhouse

The best place to find fresh spring bloom is to look within the greenhouses at Mt. Holyoke and Smith Colleges. Both colleges are having their annual spring flower shows and giving us the strength to get through these last days of winter.

Primrose at Mt. Holyoke

This looks just the supermarket primrose that I planted years ago and that blooms every spring in the dappled shade in back of our house.

Could it be that the goddess Flora has found her way to reign over Smith College’s spring flower show?

Pink tulips at Smith College

Tulips are in full bloom at Mt. Holyoke’s Talcott Greenhouse and Smith College’s Lyman Plant House. The exhibit ends March 17. Both exhibits are free and universally accessible. Hours: 10 am – 4 pm.

My tulips

After visiting the fabulous dispalys of spring bulbs, perennials, and flowering shrubs like camellias I was glad I could come home to my own little spring show. My tulips may not be tall but they are charming. And pink.
