On the cusp of Spring, Susan and I spent last evening amidst a blur of color and fragrances at the Smith College greenhouses.  The draw was a pair of rooms filled with forced bulbs, their blossoming choreographed to provide a visual feast for those who came to see them.

Entering the show:

…and some details from the evening:






…and finally,

By the time you see these, it will be Spring.

Love the CLOSEUP and really love your work here.

That place looks like heaven to me. I can imagine the scent!

Cuz, thanks! I took skads of really long hand-held shots and only managed to save these few, but I’m happy with them. Once again my little Canon point-and-shoot came through in a situation which precluded a tripod.

Bobbie, KJ, thanks for the kind words. And yes, the fragrance was heavenly! (Yeah, I know, Guys shouldn’t notice such things, or at least should refer to them as “the smell!” 😉 )

The third-to-last closeup shot is by far my favorite — the way the light seems to be shining right out of the center of the flower! Me likey.

Egads! Close-ups of sex organs!

Sure, they’re flowers… but still!

Ursi, mine as well!

And Ten, yes, they’re erotic as all get-out, but I try to keep it in my pants at such events.
