    Exclamation I refuse to take my plants inside!

    I got so tired of taking my plants in and out of the house...I decided just to wrap the hole dang thing up in frost cloth and put a heater out there! LOL

    My husband had to crawl out the bottom earlier to run an errand and it was really funny. What do you all think of it?

    Check out the view when you open my door:


    I wonder what my neighbors are thinking...

    Man...why didn't I think of that! LOL

    Acutally, the front area is really long and the cloth has gathered up on the ground. The shrubs outside the porch are keeping the east and west sides from blowing around. I am quite surprised and how well it turn out. The cats are completely confused and were sniffing around out there trying to figure out where the "wall" came from.

    I was just standing out there and its kinda nice...I have to open it up tomorrow though or the mailman is gonna be mighty confused.

    I'm amazed at the length orchid growers would go to for the love of the plants.Very ingenious.

    I had to wrap it up again last night. This morning I found a little bird was trapped in there! Either he fell asleep when I was wrapping it up or worked his way into that cozy environment. Either way he was very glad I let him go!!

    So glad you all enjoyed the pic!
