The Ladies in Waiting

This photo was taken in the greenhouse Saturday morning, while it was still in the 20's outside. These guys are all just patiently waiting for good weather so they can go back outside. Some, like the Tibuchina Grandiflora, are looking a little sad in the winter, but others, like the Cup and Saucer vine (Cobaea scandens) on the far right, don't care that it's winter, and are climbing up and across the ceiling!


  1. That's a greenhouse? It looks entirely lovely and sturdy (like a real building). Do you have an outside view?!

  2. It's a really fabulous building, more of a traditional Victorian "glass house" than a greenhouse, heat, ventilation, etc. Part of why I love my job! It makes it very easy to overwinter things from the summer containers, and is an awesome escape from the cold during the winter.
