      I just updated my post as I learned that they are offering virtual visits via live stream starting Mar. 6 – 20, so anyone can visit. Mark your calendar! 🙂

  3. Smith College? I wonder if we’ll be able to go to a garden show this year? Of course, you live in one. 🙂

    Badass bulbs!

  10. Alice says:

    That is a beautiful & wonderful smelling memory, to hold dear (with a photographic trigger). What is growing right-front? Flowers reminds me of Freesia.

    Omygosh so lovely to see! 😍

    Appropriate for the first Wine Wednesday for Oregonians

  13. Debbie says:

    What is it about bulb flowers that makes them so stunning?!? I’ve long gravitated to tulips, daffodils, and crocus … and best of all, they come up every year, without my needing to plant them!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      They bloom at a time when we really need that splash of color. They are such a gift, one that keeps on giving (so long as the rodents and deer don’t eat them first!) 🙂

    Beautiful. It’s good that they are offering virtual tours!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Vicki. I was so excited that they are offering it virtually. I’ve been going for decades and was sad to miss it last year due to Covid. It is a tradition that beats the winter blues!

  15. Wonderful, wonderful colors! I hope that you will be able to go in person in 2022.

  16. I do love the colour. Thanks for the links😊

  17. Kris P says:

    That’s one gorgeous photo. Thanks for the link!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Kris. They always do a great job at Smith, and before Covid, it had become quite popular with folks driving hundreds of miles to see it. It would be jammed with people shuffling along, so no social distancing. A virtual tour won’t have the scents, but still worth a visit.

  18. Jet Eliot says:

    What a beautiful dose of uplifting colors and vibrancy. Thanks so much, Eliza.

  19. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Such lovely colours

  20. Very nice Eliza! Enjoyed seeing your image! Brightened my day!

  21. pbmgarden says:

    Thanks for sharing the link Eliza. This looks wonderful.

  22. Joanne says:

    Wow, what a beautiful and colourful sight for you after living with so much whiteness all winter. ❤

  23. bittster says:

    Nice! I just watched the video of last year’s show. It’s amazing how much they have packed into those benches, and the variety is incredible. A real celebration of spring 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Frank! It is definitely a rite of spring for me. Glad you checked it out. Did you notice the Zoom lecture on native plants scheduled for Mar.4 at 4 pm? Looks promising.

  24. Love your beautiful photo and the wonderful preview cheered me up! Hope you have new bulb show photo memories next year!

  25. naturebackin says:

    What sight for sore eyes – such extravagant colour. Great that they are having a virtual show at least.

  26. Beautiful abundant memories Eliza🌻🌼💐🥀

  27. Nothing more beautiful than the color of a flower!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      So true, Gary and there are LOTS of them at the bulb show upon which to feast the eyes. I’m looking forward to seeing their virtual tour tomorrow!

  28. This is fabulous news indeed!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I just checked it out and it seems they only have one mounted camera, I was hoping to get a closer view. Probably will be fun to check every few days to see how it progresses. Looks so strange devoid of people though!

  29. I just learned that the original sense of the word is indeed botanical, from Greek bolbos, which meant ‘a bulbous plant.’ The extension by analogy of shape to ‘a swelling in a glass tube’ had appeared by 1800.
