    Smile Sunroom/Greenhouse

    My sunroom is mostly done and I thought I'd share a couple pictures of it now that they have the basics done. They will be re-pouring the ramp and entry way as they didn't do it to code. Overall though, it's one very nice room. I cannot wait until they get it all finished!

    I have some new shelves and so far all Cattleya, Vanda and other warmer types are already basking in their new western view.

    The vandas' acting as a curtain for my mounted plants.

    My family is in Michigan, and they are with you on that one. They keep asking me if it's warm here.

    Connie, that looks wonderful. Now that your porch is bare, you have the perfect excuse to collect more orchids. I mean you would not want people to think you moved out now. hehehe....

    Cheers,
