The day I knew would come, has come. The Sonoma greenhouse is up for sale. There is more than a greenhouse, of course. It is a horse ranch with a house, a 20 horse barn, an arena and a lot of other horsey features. They had award winning Morgan horses. But the owner is 90 and needs to move to a better situation for her. In my non-expert opinion, a very good deal. A nice horse and orchid establishment for your vacation home in the heart of wine country.

The greenhouse is in need of some repair but nothing major. A handy person could take care of it for about $1000. I have put a couple hundred into it but couldn't do more since I don't own it.
Be it four months or a year, I will have to move out. I am OK if it is seven months since the Catts can be outside mid-May. At some point I will be forced to decide what I really want in my collection.
