March 2018

Phew!  What a winter!  This is one to forget, even though there were some important lessons - including the one about Mother Nature and global warming.

Sadly, another lesson I learned is that a two by four constructed wooden greenhouse is no match for four feet (one meter) of snow accumulation.  Sadly, the greenhouse that we built in 2002 is no more, just a jumble of broken sticks and a mess to clean up.

It's important to see the bright side in disasters. 

The silver lining of the greenhouse collapse is that we no longer have to worry about it, and can rebuild using the lessons we've learned on what not to do, and how to make changes to the design, or, not rebuild at all, just clear away the debris and wait for inspiration.

The nursery is always evolving - maybe I no longer need a greenhouse!

The Succulent ID App is justly popular - it's got over 20,000 downloads onto your devices in the past few months. 

It gets frequent updates such as more great plant pages, and other offerings as well, including access to the Succulent Care Handbook, right in it, and other resources too. 

If you have a mobile device, you need this app - did I mention that it's free?

There's an app for that!  Get the Succulent ID App on your mobile device...
