Wentworth Greenhouses

Learn about growing orchids at Amazon.com

What does one do to shake the winter blues? My solution is a visit to a greenhouse such as Wentsworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford, NH.  They have a nice collection of orchids and exotic plants.

A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books. ~Walt Whitman

I have an Agapanthus plant which has never bloomed. I’ve waited ten years. Here is one in bloom.

Remember the novelty song “May the Bird of Paradise Fly Up Your Nose”?  It was perfomed by Jimmy Dickens in 1965. This is the flower of the same name.
