Natural Beauty at the Smith College Botanical Gardens
Ranked as the #1 thing to do in Northampton by Tripadvisor, the garden boasts a very impressive botanic collection. With thousands of exotic plants in a beautiful Victorian themed glass building, it guarantees an uplifting joyous experience, especially on gloomy winter days. While it is a wonderful place to visit all year round, the Spring Bulb Show provides the perfect break from the winter dreariness. It is definitely worth the trip wherever you are!
The Spring Bulb Show opens up with themed lectures and book-signings into a themed event. For instance, this year the garden has brought to life a Gorey version of the bulb show, based on his illustrated classic ‘The Evil Garden.’ With extensive indoor and outdoor gardens and ponds, you can wander about for hours discovering new plants in rooms abound with specific magnificent smells or kick back and settle down on their benches with a relaxing break.
Most of all, the show gives you an opportunity to take a break – from pestering emails, ever lit screens and ongoing phone calls. It gives you the much-needed change from the hustle and bustle of everyday commitments and activities. The Spring Bulb Show will give you the experience to enjoy beauty in its purest form. So, be ready to immerse in the colorful fluorescent variety of flowering buds!
