Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Come on Out to the Greenhouse

Let's take a stroll out to the greenhouse and see what's up.  You may recall this post from November  when things were getting fairly crowded.  It's now possible to walk through the whole space again.


This papyrus got so tall that it's reaching through the beams and hitting the top of the greenhouse so it gets to be a permanent resident.




 The Cascade Cactus and Succulents Society will be stopping by on Sunday so a few plants that spend the winter in the house were moved out here including a few that were purchased at that group's annual September sale.

These wonderful tiny pots and their plants came from the sale and were made by Pete of Pete's Pots and Plants.

Some of these could probably come out where they could be better enjoyed.  

Looking downright empty.

On the Trevesia palmata.  Looks like it's getting ready to bloom. 






Time to head back out and get some gardening done.  Thanks for taking a little break with me.

  3. What a pleasure for plant societies to visit your garden & greenhouse -- what are you baking for the occasion? ;)

  4. I do love your greenhouse! It looks spick & span for the visit tomorrow: you'll knock their socks off. It's nice to take a look at some familiar corners in your treasure house; I don't recall the curtain with the sunflowers though.

  6. The magic factor of this space increases every year (inversely to the available space I think). You need to get your tech game going and create a VR photo of this space!

  11. Are you sure this is not a retail space attached to your house?!! Reminds me of all the nurseries you visit with great plants and "staging," as they like to say.

  12. Your greenhouse is like the most exotic plant shop/gift shop ever. Have fun with your visitors on Sunday!

  14. I agree with the previous statement that you could charge admission to this quirky, fascinating space. Curious to see those Trevesia blooms.
