|The deck - ck (~ 20 plants)
The screened in porch - ck (~ 30 plants)
My pretend greenhouse - ck ( ~ 60 plants)
My driveway - ck (exept for ~ 50 trees that are hardy and stayed there) ( ~ 250 plants - of which about 100 were seedlings)
Inside they went to the living room - 2 - 3 x 6 fold up tables, garage 4 - 3 x 6 fold up tables and basement 3 - 3 x 6 fold up tables.
Now DW was not exactly happy, but not irate (thank goodness).
But we do have some very lovely plants in the living room - including Bird of Paradise, climbing Ylang Ylang, two tropical Gingers (a white one in full bloom), myrh and frankincense. Maybe I shall keep them here for Christmas. And two rather esoteric ones I am rather proud of since I grew them from seed in 2014 - Dierama and Dietes.
So I really do feel a sense of accomplishment - particularly since the temps are going down to the low 30s for the next 4 days. And I got EVERYTHING brought in.
Now I just have to figure out exactly what I am gonna do with all these plants. Everywhere is fair game but my wife's bedroom.
I do so hate Winter and at times wished I lived in Zone 10.

Yeah, she might balk at that...
