greenhouse tulip

The ground is still covered in snow, shrinking a bit but still there. Wishing for color, I headed to Wellesley College.

The Margaret C. Ferguson Greenhouses are a series of interconnected greenhouses with plants in different stages of life. There are cactus and there are ferns, there are flowers in bloom and some past peak. I was quite happy wandering, absorbing warmth and color.

One room housed pots of blooming spring flowers. The predominant types were daffodils and pansies, with a single pot of tulips just past peak bloom.

More color is waiting for your eyes in the gallery gardens at Wellesley College - 2015.
