Open House June 18, 2011, 10am-2pm

The first of the re-done benches in place

I do some level of spring cleaning every year, but this year I am going all out. Every plant, bench and stand is coming out. I washed the windows and am adding a layer of bubble wrap. I have plenty of paint and I am not afraid to use it. There will be a new spirit of horticultural excellence in the greenhouse.

All this should take about a month to finish, well before the open house I have scheduled jointly with Napa Valley Orchids.

You are all invited but if you have to drive more than an hour and a half I won't hold it against you is you don't come. Debra will have lots of plants for sale and I will have some too.

Snacks, drinks, orchid chatter. Should be fun.


  1. it sounds pretty exciting...but I live in Hong Kong...= =

  2. wish I could come too, but I'll in MX, a tad more than an hour and a half away. Your blog certainly makes a good point for living where there are such active and large numbers of orchid lovers.

  3. I probably won't be able to make it. But I'd like to. Do you expect to have a lot of orchids blooming at that time?

  4. I will have some in bloom. Not sure it will qualify as 'a lot'.
