Is is just me or does every cold climate gardener secretly long to have a conservatory of their own.
Maybe not on such a grand scale as the Lewis Ginter or Franklin Park Conservatory’s.
Where you could grow some of those brilliant colored Tropical plants that are found in the warm tropical climates of seas, sand, warm breezes and sun all year long.
Just let the mornings start getting cooler and I start dreading winter even before fall has arrived.
Or maybe it is that with the early summer this year and the garden about all but done blooming for the year I get to longing for spring to arrive already when the garden is just coming alive again with its many blooms to look forward to for a new year.
But with a conservatory of your very own the dread of fall with the end of another growing season and the cold of winter would not matter at all or maybe half as much. One could make believe they were on a tropical island of their own.
Well maybe not one so big that it could hold its own hut inside mind you.
But seeing green and variegated colored foliage all year long would be a pleasant change for us cold weather northerners.
or lemon yellows.
Not practical here and certainly not in the budget and lets face it they are a lot of work, and my, all of those windows to clean.
But I would settle for a nice sunroom or porch one day to grow plants and enjoy the seasons a little better knowing I had a garden indoors and a warm spot to catch some winter rays when they did grace us here in Ohio.
What about you? What would you long to have?
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and….
