First, a follow-up to yesterday's Wednesday Vignette to show that things are not one-sided.
I'm guessing that the original openings may have been too narrow for ADA compliance. The building has been re-worked and there is a huge entrance on another wall for both men and women.
Tillandsias enjoying their weekly bath. These are the only ones that still live in the house. The rest are in the greenhouse where they get a periodic drench from the hose.
The last few freezing days with high winds finally knocked the foliage off of the contorted filbert just in time for the late January show when the catkins elongate and dangle in the breeze.
All but this one tenacious leaf.
Even in the cold, colchicum are prepared for spring. Snowdrop foliage is visible and the potted hyacinths, left outside to chill are also showing green. The leaves littering the bed are an organic protective mulch, not the sign of a lazy gardener. (If you believe that, I've got a bridge I'd like to sell you.)
It's too cold outside so lets go into the greenhouse where it's a bit warmer. Schlumbergeras continue to bloom. I really must put some moss around the bottom of that pot to camouflage it's heinousness.
There are a lot of plants spending the winter in here.
The heater is going almost constantly during this freeze. Hopefully it'll warm up soon.
It's colder on the floor than on the shelves and one of the more tender things looks like it wants to be just a bit warmer. Fortunately, I have a small back-up for that plant hanging around.
There is always a winter loss or two. Usually a succulent that somehow got watered. Oops.
Happy eleventh day of Christmas!
