Spent Sunday afternoon at Smith College, diggin’ the Mum Show with Susan (she has all the best ideas! )
There were more kinds of Mums than I’d ever imagined! Here are a few shots from the day.
Cascading mums, trained on screens which are rolled down a bit every couple of days, making for a wall-size display:
There were lots of people there, it being opening day, but still, I was surprised to run into Rod Stewart:
Heheh, sorry about that…
My favorites, though, were of a variety called “Wind Dancer:”
They came in lots of colors, but I was partial to these butterscotch ones:
And of course, where there are flowers, there ought to be honey bees:
Couldn’t get her to sit still for me, sorry…
Before we left Susan took a little time out to enjoy the goldfish in the Orchid Room:
…and I took a little time out to enjoy Susan by the goldfish pond!
OK, so they’re not all ruby shots, but I thought enough of them were to pass this off as an RT post!
Besides, there’s plenty more Rubyliciousness over at Mary’s!
