An escape to my greenhouse

You can see, from reading my recent blogs, that it has been a rather harsh winter here, where I live, as well as in many other locales.  Bracing winds, heavy rains, and blankets of snow, makes one long for the arrival of spring. This time of year, it's always a pleasurable escape to visit the local botanical gardens.  I look forward to the annual orchid show at The New York Botanical Garden, which begins on February 27th.  I also love going to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, where there are always exquisite displays.  Of course, I am very fortunate because I have a greenhouse of my own, where Shaun Kass, my gardener, has been doing a fine job of nurturing my plant collection.  Please enjoy this little escape tour.
