In the Bleak Mid-Winter : A Visit to the Greenhouse

When the weather is icy and cold and the days begin and end in darkness, it is a nice reprieve to take some pictures in the greenhouse. Our greenhouse is primarily used to keep outdoor plants going through the winter and to have a place that houseplants can survive without the drying effect of the wood stove. The ivy geraniums continue to bloom in a vivid pink.
The jade plant was too big to move out of the greenhouse so it has become a permanent fixture.

The sunlight is a welcome treat as these plants turn themselves toward the light.
Taking a picture from a ways back I can catch a whole mixture of ferns, wandering jew, geraniums, and a Christmas cactus. The fragrance from the scented geraniums makes the time spent in the greenhouse even more worthwhile.
