What's in Bloom at Smith?

What was in bloom?


7/6/10 Daylilies in Capin Garden

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.)
