Very Exciting Times
For the first time in YEARS, I have several orchids blooming and many more in spike. About two thirds of my Phalaenopsis orchids are currently blooming or in spike! Having our greenhouse has REALLY paid off. 🙂
So I’m here to share photos of my orchids that are in bloom! The first to bloom on a new spike was the Phalaenopsis tetraspis var. alba that I ordered from Orchids by Hausermann last summer:
Orchid Gifts for the Greenhouse
My birthday was last month, and my husband surprised me with a gift card for Orchids by Hausermann! I’ve ordered orchids from them in the past, but it’s been many years since I’ve done so. Now that we have the greenhouse, it’s a good time to try some new orchids!
I actually ordered NINE new orchids in all…here are some of them:
Sharing My Greenhouse Setup
Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day! One of my NOID Phals started blooming recently so I wanted to share a couple pics before we take a look at my greenhouse setup. Check out this beauty:
My Urban Backyard Greenhouse
I posted about the completion of my greenhouse on Instagram, but I somehow completely forgot to write about it here! What kind of blogger am I?! Actually, I haven’t blogged about it yet because we didn’t really get the greenhouse set up properly until this weekend.
Here’s the greenhouse in all its fully constructed glory:
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:
