Now that we’ve settled into our apartment in DC, I thought I would share my new orchid growing setup here. We’re rending a condo on the top floor of a 4-ish story building (the bottom floor is an English basement). Our apartment gets mostly northern exposure, which is not great for orchids, but one room has a brighter, eastern-facing window…and we have a loft and several skylights!
Phew! It’s been awhile since I posted about my move to Washington, DC. Well, I’ve been here for almost a month now! I’ve finally reached the point where I feel settled enough start exploring my new city. So last Friday morning I took my first ride on the DC Circulator over to the National Mall, where I hit up the Hirshhorn Musem. Everyone else is visiting this museum for the Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirrors exhibit, but I went because it’s hosting an orchid exhibit through May 14!
The promo code is good through Wednesday, January 4, 2017.
You’re probably wondering what my announcement is. Well, after 15 years of living in New York City, I’m moving to Washington, DC! My husband’s business is expanding there and at some point over the last six months it became clear that it would make more sense for him to move to DC than for him to commute between the two cities on a frequent basis. There was no real reason for us to keep our apartment in Brooklyn simply for me to stay here…so we’re packing up all of our stuff and ripping the NYC bandaid off.
Happy Belated Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. I’m writing today to let you know that the Brooklyn Orchids 2017 Calendar is now available on my Zazzle store!

It’s so exciting to finally have blooms around the house! My Brassavola nodosa, a birthday gift from my husband, has three lovely blooms that opened up a couple days ago:
