Our Greenhouse Kit Has Arrived!

Greenhouse Construction Progress

I’ve been sharing some photos of this on my Instagram, but our greenhouse kit arrived last month! As you can imagine, I’m very excited!

I wanted to share our progress on the construction here, and of course I’ll blog about the greenhouse again once it’s fully finished. It’s taking time to complete the project because of our travels and my husband’s work schedule. As with growing orchids, patience is essential.  😛

We ordered a 6×10 lean-to kit from Cedar-Built in Canada awhile back, and it delivered in late June. My husband gets 100% of the credit for researching and selecting a kit (he is the best!).

Here’s what the kit looked like when it arrived:

Orchid and Life Update

First of all, I have one orchid in spike! Just one probably doesn’t sound that exciting, but most of my orchids haven’t bloomed in years. So I am psyched!

Smith College Botanic Garden Visit

This past weekend my husband and I traveled to Northampton, Massachusetts for a wedding. The town happens to be home to Smith College, and we discovered after arriving that the school has a botanic garden right on campus. So the day after the wedding we headed over to check out the Lyman Conservatory on the picturesque property.
