Don't miss the opportunity to stroll thru and enjoy the diversity and exquisteness of these flowering plants. It is always representative of the seasons and worth visiting as the seasons change.

The gardens and greenhouses at Smith College are a real gem for visitors to Northampton. They were established in the 19th C. and are well worth seeing if you are into flowers and plants.

A hidden gem...exotic plants and flowers...from inches high to 25 feet tall. Like walking quiet trails all over the world. Definitely worth the visit.

Nice oasis on campus. Beautiful garden and greenhouse. Always worth a visit when you're on campus. We miss visiting it now that our daughter has graduated.

A small pond, complete with lilies and frogs is surrounded by beds of annuals and perennials, It is well kept and peaceful. Just enough to refresh and renew at any time.

Always a beautiful place to stop while visiting my Smithie. The spring bulb show is a must see. Nice a warm on a chilly day. Makes you feel like it is summer all year round.
