Ahh, so this "fabric" that you have Chris, is very much like the old plastic type of greenhouses then? We used to have all the Rose Growers here in the Mt. Clemens Area of MI, unfortunately Mexico took over, for so much less, it took out all our flower growers, except one......... sigh........ :(

But even those old type of houses could suffer greatly here, due to heavy snow, and of course digging your way to the greenhouse is yet another challenge when you may have a blizzard on your hands!

I wish I could have tropical plants and such, like Shirley's and Bonnie's. alas, none would survive our deadly winters. My folks lived in the Florida Keys for over 20 years, it was my second home! I so miss it to! I see your on the Atlantic side Bonnie, Awesome, but the Gulf Side is wonderful to! My Dad built homes on both sides, after he "tired" of fishing the Atlantic, he built another house on the gulf side, ( basically across the street in the keys) LOL!

And, I would just love to be able to decorate my home garden with old china or glass anything, but again, the winters here do not agree with anything like that. Both China, pottery and glass will all crack and be destroyed by the cold. I have to be sure to put all planters and stuff away before the first snow hits, or anything I've got outside won't survive. Even my winter hardy plants often die over winter.

If I ever was able to build another house (we built this one), I would want a Sun/Florida room where I could have lovely plants like you'all have. It makes me happy just to see them though! :) Thanks for sharing!

I often thought if I lived in another climate, I would need a greenhouse, but sure seems like a lot of work, Chris

Comment by Chris Pollock on November 12, 2014 at 8:21pm

Bonnie, those are some beautiful Orchids. I can't believe they're growing on that Oak tree. I'd think it's only something you'd seen in South America or some other tropical place. Shirley, like your Cactus garden, sometimes I'm tempted to just dig up the front yard, fill it with rock and Cactus and not have to worry about cutting weeds ever again. I went today on the way back and got two 15lb propane tanks. Now I can run the heater on high. Last I checked it was 39 outside and 72 inside the greenhouse. Much better than last night with the 2 1lb cans.

Thank you, Bonnie, I'll have to look that up.  Your land is beautiful!

Love your Bromeliads and the Palm trees.  What part of Florida do you live in?  I have a girlfriend in Orange Park, Florida.  Here gardens look allot like yours.  She does have a hard time growing cactus, because of all the humdity and rain. 

Comment by BikerBonnie on November 12, 2014 at 8:56am

Thank you Shirley, yours looks great also, life your bottle sculpture too, a friend of mine makes them.

  Here are more of my bromeliads.........

Comment by Shirley Grundman on November 12, 2014 at 8:21am

Chris, I love your greenhouse.  I've always wanted one.  The plants I could grown in there!  Thanks for showing up you plant pics too.  Love them.  Sorry to here about your Yorkie.  It sounds like your on the right track though.

Bonnie, Oh my LOVE your plants.  Yes, you can grow so much in Florida.  I love the tropical look.  I love gardening too.  I have a tropical garden (nothing like Bonnie's) and a cactus garden too.  Here is a picture of my cactus garden.  All my chipped ceramic go into it.  It's kind of a junk garden too.

GLASS HOUNDS are the most interesting people!

Morning Vicki, not mesh, it's made of High Density Polyethylene Fabric. Speaking of cold, it's 32 outside right now at 6:28 and feels like 18. Way too cold for this early. I don't think the little heater I have is enough even though when you're inside you don't feel any wind. I haven't had the gumption yet to walk outside to see what the temp is inside. Bonnie, when I get back this afternoon I'll look at your photos but really quick, I love them. Also love the car that you can see part of in one of them.
