Capen Gardens at Smith College in the Spring — Lovely!

It was my good fortune to visit the campus of my alma mater to attend a reunion as an observer last May and one of the highlights of my trip was visiting Capen Gardens on campus.   These lovely gardens are tucked behind one of the student dorms and have bloomed gorgeously since long before I was a student at Smith in the early 80s.   When my daughter was a toddler we also had a wonderful photo shoot with her in their garden.   I share the photos here.

About anaincolorado

Hi, I am an avid gardener both at home and at Rosedale Community Garden where I've had a plot for 19 years. I am very interested in learning more about gardening, how to preserve it, incorporating farm fresh produce into my cooking and living a healthy lifestyle. In addition, I am a Master Community Gardener through Denver Urban Gardens and am a shareholder at the Chatfield CSA. In 2015, I spearheaded an effort to start a community donation garden at St. Philip's Lutheran Church -- a project I will share on my blog. I am eager to share what I've learned and the adventures I had learning new things and interacting with the garden community.
