    Default My Quirky Nursery - Pt. 2

    Hi -

    Just thought some of you might enjoy a couple more shots of my unique orchid nursery - one might say it suffers from a sort of "benign neglect" - works for me!

    What ever works for you is all that counts! Looks like you have a full time job on your hands.

    I should be more specific - "my nursery" is just my favorite local one - NOT, thank goodness, my own full-time responsibility!

    While a greenhouse would be nice, I don't think my apartment complex would agree to build one for me, so I'm still limited to a small, southern exposure deck and sliding glass doors - and taking care of my own 53 orchids has turned into a more than full-time job!
