    Default New Greenhouse finally DONE!!!!

    I kept running out of space so I decided to go for broke and set up a freestanding greenhouse in the backyard! I should have plenty of space for a while!!! No more lean-tos, kits, or patio watering for me!!!!

    Actually, the family visited the Louis Ginter Botanical Garden earlier today in Richmond, VA. They have beautiful grounds, a first class conservatory (brand new) and some nice orchids. I thought you might enjoy a few pics!

    Default I missed this one!

    That place looks amazing! Could not begin to imagine how long it would take to water in there! Thanks for the photos, Garland.

    Cheers!
