Cristine and I always look forward to the Smith College Bulb Show.  Always in mid March, it is a lovely reminder that Spring is not far off.

2015 Smith College Bulb Show

The annual Smith College Spring Bulb Show always runs early in March, and Cris and I were able to go this morning.

It is always amazing.

After the winter we have had here in the Northeast, walking into a greenhouse and seeing these flowers is beyond description.

There are always tons of tulips.

As well as tiny little guys like these ↑.

Some of the tulips have these erose edges.  So delicate.

I love how these little flowers are lined up in a row.

That’s a pretty tulip ↑.

Though I always gravitate more toward the greens and yellows.

And there are usually a few that are showing off the business parts of the flower.  To me, it feels a bit like I’m seeing something that should be private.

I’ll close out with a couple of tulips.

Thinking of Hank, as I know he has a Smith College connection.  Hi Hank, wish you were here.
