Hothouse Therapy

Like Miss Rumphius in Barbara Cooney's lovely book,  I take great pleasure in visiting hothouses in the dead of winter when the rest of the world (or at least this part of the world) is covered in ice and snow.


In Gardener's Supply Company's hothouse on Intervale Road in Burlington, lady's slipper orchid (top), begonia (above), pitcher plant (below left), and oncidium orchid (below right) combine to create a restful and magical atmosphere.
