THE CONSERVATORY BUG

Often,  my passion for flowers, gardening and designing takes me on day trips to nurseries and flower shows.  Nurseries are wonderful places to visit, not just in the planting season, but in all seasons.   Autumn is a wonderful time for choosing bulbs to be planted so they can later be enjoyed in the spring.  Sometimes, to be at my favorite nursery, Martin Viette in East Norwich, NY in the dead of winter can also be a treat.  Often looking through gardening books and planning my own gardens, or browsing through the wonderful assortment of seeds just brings me a bit closer to spring.

It was on one of those day adventures to the conservatories at the New York Botanical Gardens for the Orchid Show, that I was bitten by the Conservatory Bug!  To be in a glass room in the dead of winter and feel the warmth of the sun and smell the damp,  freshness of the earth and be among fresh plants all the while looking out onto the snowy landscape was like heaven  to me. I knew then, that someday I would have a conservatory of my own.

It is my own secret garden where I sip my morning coffee and enjoy each season no matter what the weather!

Hi there,
Yes, I spend many wonderful moments in that room. The best is a rainy evening, I sit out there and listen to the rain beating down on the roof, and it's like sitting outside, but you don't get wet!

Not having much luck with my afghan! Somehow I've managed to gain stitches.... I need my mommy! :) She's coming home from Ireland in 2 days! She'll help me! Have a wonderful day!

Oh my gosh, that conservatory is gorgeous!!! It's my dream to have one too! I drool every time I see them in the British gardening magazines!

On Jan 7, 2008 on my blog I did a post about the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers! It's a huge old conservatory and it's so beautiful!
