Lots of new buds on everything. I must prune the roses so they can let themselves grow madly. I have a new project to start . I have an old small shadehouse on the north side of the house. It was built for the aporocacti which I am getting rid of. I have already sold most and will hopefully get rid of the last ones. They are not one of my favorite plants but they came with the epis and have hung around ever since. Too prickly to do much with. The flowers are beautiful but only for a short time in spring. I am going to put new beige shadecloth on the top, clear the sides and make a few benches , then the orchids will move in.
I need the space where the orchids are now for the brugs.
Talk about musical chairs. Do you all find the same thing. ? Having to move plants as some grow into collections and some wear out their welcome.
Better say hello to all before I ramble on too much.
