The greenhouse in the cold spell

January 4, 2010

The first thing I check when I arrive at Mother’s (apart that she’s OK) is the greenhouse, as there is still a bit of light. This was the case yesterday, where I noticed the minimum temperature had been just under 2C, and the maximum about 9C. So just frost free, and with the cold air blower running all the time, no damage anywhere.

I took this photo of the Cymbidium; although there was still daylight, the camera could not record a decent image without flash, which is why the backgrounds of so many greenhouse shots taken at this time of the year are so dark.
