Conservatory Status

While we got seven inches of snow yesterday, it still looks and feels like paradise in the conservatory.  The plants have also noticed the lengthening days, and are starting to prepare for the new growing season.

 The geraniums, while still green, were in a semi dormant state.  Now they have burst into bloom.

The fig tree is pushing out new leaves, and has already started forming fruits.

We have started the geranium cuttings for the summer window boxes.

Seeds are off to a good start, at least the ones spared by the mouse.

I wish this photo were “scratch and sniff.”  The orange blossoms have released a heavenly scent that fills the entire conservatory.

I have received some questions about our conservatory.  It was built by my husband.  His company builds these and new homes in the Northern Virginia and West Virginia Panhandle.  You can see some of his work here!

      Thank you, Emily! The scent is amazing. Now I understand why Queen Victoria chose to have orange blossoms in her wedding to Prince Albert.
