After a brief absence on OT, I'm putting together some photos to update my collection.
These are shots of my various grow areas, such as they are. I'll put together sequential posts to split them up properly.
Right now, the indoor plants are not receiving enough light, so we are going to try to rig up some really bright daylight spectrum fluorescents today.
I took these this morning at about 7:00 am, while it was still somewhat dark outside, and the fogkept any direct sun from skewing the colors.
As I was taking the photos on the balcony, our local Great Blue Heron flew in and walked (or stalked) along the edge of the lake. He was moving too fast for me to get a clear shot, but I did get a blurred one that gives a sense of his elegance.
So, here they are, the full range of our space for our 150 or so orchids:
I wish I had been able to get a better shot - maybe next time:
Me too maybe one day you will get better photo that heron is very nervous bird and is not that easy to take the photo, lovely your growing area such a very nice and well decorated plants and so neat Maura.
Maura, I am impressed. I should you the amount in my dining room. We both are kindered-spirits with a touch of OCD
WOW...great use of space Maura! Doesn't seem cramped or cluttered and your balcony overlooking the lake still looks as open and airy! Convey my congratulations to Philip for his bonsai and I spy your new bonsai plant there as well. Herons are too difficult to photograph well.
Miss your posts recently glad that you are now back as active as ever.
Only 150? Just think how many you might have had you a house or greenhouse. heh
Love the bonsai! (Especially the one in the second photo top left.)
