Back to Work

I spent most of today washing windows. Normally that would depress me because I hate cleaning. (Cooking and laundry are ok, but windows?!) But since these windows were in a greenhouse and this greenhouse has been out of commission since before Thanksgiving, I was thrilled to be getting it back on line.

Back in November I walked in and smelled gas. It wasn't freezing, but I could see my breath, which isn't something I aim for in a greenhouse. Wouldn't you think getting a heater fixed was a simple thing? Not in NYC around the holidays; it's not worth the effort for most contractors. So I schlepped the plants over to another greenhouse for the duration. And now, more than a month later, I'm bringing the babies home.

It'll take a while to get the landscape back to its former glory, but that's what I'm here for.

Gorgeous pics, and having seen the greenhouses in their previous glory I'm glad to know you're getting them back into shape. I, too, am back to work with five indoor garden clients tomorrow...

Great photos! Love those Saintpaulia diplotrichas, even though everyone thinks they're so common.

BTW, do you do blinds?

I agree, Saintpaulias can be lush and lovely when they're well grown.

As for blinds...forget about it!
