Visiting some friends at Mt. Holyoke College

I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.
-- Willa Cather, O Pioneers 1913

‘Hally Jolivette’ Cherry. This guy will bloom for the next two weeks.

Japanese Flowering Apricot. What a lovely fragrance! Small yellow fruits follow the blooms. Don't eat them!

Saucer Magnolia is getting on in age. Getting a little round. Bring on the late frost! We can take it!

We can see why this is called the Amazonian Zebra Plant

Where are the frogs?

Amaryllis 'Pink Impression'. We like the white stripes on the petals

The ubiquitous geranium. We'll bring one to the cemetery in a few weeks.

Where are the frogs? One of them is stuck in my throat today. Still not over my cold 100%.
