I'm headed to Al's Orchid Greenhouse today with a friend from the local Gesneriad Society chapter, so I thought I should finally post the photos I took from my last visit!
If you've been wondering about the lack of posts in the past week, well, I was busy last weekend. I usually have time on Saturday or Sunday to set up a series of posts for the week, but last weekend, I went to Maryland's Eastern Shore for my niece's seventh birthday, wrote a freelance news article, and staffed a DC State Fair information table at a farmers' market. So, I ended up being quite busy. Plus, I quit my job. I'm on vacation this upcoming week, but the following week is my last one. While I'm unemployed, I'll be focusing on tending my gardens, freelancing, and finding a full-time job--but only after I spend some real time just relaxing, which I haven't been able to do in more than a year and a half, what with all the international moves and employment turmoil I've put myself through.
So here are some photos of Al's greenhouse from mid-April.
NCAC show in 2010, when I was convinced to join the chapter.
