A Fantastic Trip To A Boise Greenhouse

New Plants

The drive to the greenhouse was a delight for me as it has been awhile since I have seen Been downtown the city. Kathy took the exit for Garden city and It was pleasant to see how Garden City had been clean up. We past a couple bickers that had jet packs on their back and were moving as fast as traffic. This was an area of Boise I had not since I left in 1955. On arrival there were so many greenhouses I couldn’t count them.

Entrance to the Greenhouse.

There was a map and directions to the area. The plants were all named which treat has some plants I had not seen before. The greenhouse we enter was splash of color and we just stood and admire the sight. Kathy had my camera and started taken pictures I want. The number of bi-color petunias was outstanding. There was even a black petunias. Shortly after while I started collecting plants I want. I found a Angel-wing begonia that I have wanted for a long time. I found another begonia, 2 orchids, I selected a pink bi-color petunia, and other plants That I wanted. The succulents were great you get buy one of several kinds of cacti. The jade trees were at 5 feet tall. Kathy found a small to add to my plants.
