    Apparently, no polar vortexes hit you this year! Nice recovery from 2 winter's ago.

    I can expect freezing temps overnight until mid-May here in metro Denver. But we have also been warmer than expected. However, April is still Denver's 2nd snowiest month of the year (March #1). So no matter how warm it has been, it can still get freezing temps overnight for a while. We have not had any snow yet this April. March did exceed the norm in snow totals.

    When I saw your other post, I was afraid of that... It's really cute and reminds me of the one in my avatar, which I ended up losing a few years back. Thanks for sharing all your pictures! Now I have to get a bunch resized and posted too!

    This is so amazing it is almost depressing. Lately I have been thinking about getting rid of most of my orchids and focusing on the Phals and Gesneriads which have been so satisfying. I am even trying out making hybrids from the African violets which can eventually bloom in my lifetime. The orchids just seem to struggle (along with me) so much and they are all so small it may be years until I see a lush tropical paradise like you have there, if ever. I keep telling myself to not make any drastic decisions until they have had a summer outside.

    The plants look so healthy. How much light are you giving them. Do they get direct morning light or are they covered by say a shade cloth all the time. I have a greenhouse which I put shade cloth but I am not sure I should shade it completely.

    So pretty, Bruce! I'm with Jack on this one - could get lost in there.

    50 % shade on the top and I think it was 35 or 40 on the sides. I hang the high light loving plants way up high to shade the ones that require much less light.

    cheers,

    I can only dream to one day have a greenhouse as nice as yours! Your plants are stunning, looks just like a real tropical paradise. It's beautiful!
