Some Much Needed Color

Saint Patrick’s Day is supposed to be pea planting time, but with temperatures barely getting above freezing today, I was hunkered down inside instead of digging in the garden. Winter seems determined to hang on a little while longer this year, and outside the spring bulbs are just barely beginning to push up through the soil.

This time of year the spring flower shows at the Smith College and Mount Holyoke College Botanic Gardens are the perfect antidote to the late winter gloom outside. I thought I’d share a few photos from my visits to the greenhouses. Click on any thumbnail to launch the slideshow.

  1. We’re boiling sap today so we have plow and shovel tomorrow. Sad state of affairs with Spring on the calendar. But, I’ll head to the UNH Greenhouse this weekend for their open house so I can at least see something green. :)
