Here is a quick look at the bulb show at Smith College Conservatory. This is a great place to get really excited about spring. Fragrance, moisture, warm air, color, flowers, green growth offer a feast for the senses. (I love how they matched the colors of these bulbs with the curtains!)
Splashes of pink Loropetalum, nodding checkered bells of Fritillaria meleagris, and bright orange globes of citrus
Red to yellow Lachenalia aliodes with deep blue Muscari
Sweet Ipheion uniflorum with the coppery sculpture mimicking its form
Freesia- this is my favorite fragrance on earth
I love this hot colored craziness!
This week I am volunteering at Chanticleer. It is definitely spring here- snowdrops, crocus, witch hazels, cyclamen, eranthis are popping out of the ground everywhere. Stay tuned for posts about the exciting spring work and the nearby garden visits...
