    Diane,

    Your set-ups are beautiful and so neat and clean! Wow! I still love the kitchen window grow area the most. My kitchen window is so small I only have room for the two AV's you sent to me and Lou. (BTW, the large one is in bloom again!!!)

    Cheers!
    BD

    ...and I will see what I can do for the wine toast!

    Ouch! Sorry to hear that, Murray. We'll be 95 F tomorrow - hard to imagine winter at the moment. (Which is good. We get enough of it when we get it.)

    yeah, ouch! do you always get so much frosts? Maybe New Zealand is slipping further towards Antarctica

    I'm so over this winter already... I can't believe we have had so much rain... and y'all know what cold and wet means...

    Well, that is one good thing about growing indoors... it is 97 here right now, but the orchids are a cool 80. It never frosts inside, never rains too much. Only problem is it doesn't get cool enough, even in winter for some of the plants, and you have to supplement the light.
