in Bloom at Smith?
This week's edition features
flowers in bloom in the Ruth Brown Richardson Perennial Border,
a popular garden situated next to the Lyman Conservatory,
inside the fence running along College Lane.
The garden was planted in 1984
as a memorial to Ruth Brown Richardson, Class of 1913. The
plants in this garden are arranged for aesthetic purposes
and offer a stunning visual display throughout the summer.
(Annuals are planted on the street side of the fence.)
