…and the rivers are dropping:

This despite a forecast for 6-12″ of snow on Friday!

March came in like a lion, and seems determined to go out like a, um, lion!

Yeah, tulips!   Harbingers of Spring, compatriots of the robin, bright islands of color welcoming back the leaves.

And every February, visions of loveliness in the greenhouses of the Lyman Conservatory at the Smith College Spring Bulb Show!

Here are a few shots of bright red tulips to get started –  a group shot:

They’d just watered (I was there at opening time,) so I got some nice droplets on my first shots.

I’ve got lots of photos from my visit, an almost overwhelming number really, so it’ll take me a while to go through them.  Meanwhile, these three are a taste to let you know what’s up here at Little Bang Theory, and to give me a little momentum with this big-ish task.
