Fall is Officially Here

Posted on October 13, 2010 by under Life.    

We moved Chi-Chi inside the house a couple of weeks ago because it has gotten too cold outside. There is a lady at work who ships her plants off to a nursery to be “baby sat” or boarded every winter. I’m not sure how much that costs, but it sounds expensive. Since Brian and I are cheap, we’ve decided to move Chi-Chi inside and just hope for the best. With any luck, she’ll come back better than ever next year.

BTW, the geraniums and celosias didn’t make it. They were all dead when we came back from Dallas. We’ll have to buy some new ones next year and try harder to keep them alive.

Penelope is doing well, but her blooms have fallen off. I don’t think she’ll bloom again until next year probably. If I’m lucky. I think we need to move her to another container/pot and get some more wood chips, though. That way she can flourish. I need to learn more about caring for orchids since I like them so much.

By the way, the Kansas Orchid Society‘s fall show is coming up. It will be on November 6 and 7 at the Botanica. Admission is FREE.

I still can’t believe it’s already fall. At least we’re having some nice weather. Have a wonderful rest of the week!
