A big storm blew down the first two blooms on my Riviera Rainbow last night. But that's ok. There are many more coming from the info. flowers in hand, I was able to smell the beautiful fragrance, and not have to use a ladder to see the wonderful colors. I wish I had Smell-A-Vision for you!

James,
The outside of the GH is done! Though with last nights big storm, I see there are 2 areas that need MORE CAULK. But I finally got the windows all sealed. Working on the inside will be on-going: furnishing, weather stripping etc.. I have the new potting bench nearly finished, a ramp ordered, a portable a/c in place, and a utility sink chosen. We have the lumber for the "bridge" and will get busy with that this weekend. We found short stair risers that will be used for the plant shelving.

@Terrynj There has been great discussion and pictures of those of us building the Harbor Freight Greenhouse over the past months. Hints, suggestions, customizing etc. Go to the Greenhouse Forum and look for Harbor Freight Greenhouse. It's a lot of pages as I started it when I was still contemplating on which GH to buy. The plumeria will have a nice warm spot in the greenhouse this winter. Hurray!
