Camellia japonica ‘Imbricata Rubra Plena’ at Lyman Conservatory, Smith College Botanic Garden
The Vernal Equinox occurs at 12:15 p.m. Eastern Time today, but it sure doesn’t feel like spring. True, there may be signs here and there —increasing daylight, bird song, pussy willows— but the air is still chilly and a thick blanket of snow covers the ground. For a couple of weeks, I entertained the idea of jetting off for Spring in Paris, but it seems Winter has that on her itinerary as well. Ho well. Guess I’ll be hibernating in the kitchen with my citrus trees and humidifying my skin at Lyman Conservatory for a wee bit longer!
