Yesterday afternoon, in the middle of getting our deck (finally) repaired, Garry said he had an important errand that could not wait. And off he went. It turned out the important errand was buying me a new orchid. He had spotted them a couple of days ago and wanted to buy one before they disappeared. I’m not sure what his inspiration was, but it’s a beautiful plant and quite different than any of the others I have.
My display table is getting a bit crowded. Right now, it’s okay because half my plants are out on the deck, but when they come inside, they will all be bigger, so everything will be even more crowded. How exactly I will be able to give them light is going to require creativity. Maybe I can put up glass shelves? They have to be glass so light can pass through them — or maybe plexiglass. The problem is, I’m really short. It’s hard for me to water plants that are not at table level.
I need another window. The only other window that is big enough for plants and gets reasonable light is the picture window in the living room window. I’m not sure how I could make that work. I’d need a long, narrow table which could sit behind the sofa by the window. Just wide enough for the plants because people sit on that sofa — and it’s the Duke’s “lounging” space. Ideas are welcome!
