Good morning dear cacti friends,

yesterday I show some friends the "snow-situation" in Köln.
The comments are in German pale , I hope you do not mind. . .
It would took me such a lot of my small lifetime to translate all that. . .
Sorry, sorry, sorry. . .
But maybe you like the pictures. . .
And if not, I don´t mind if the ADMINISTRATION errase this post.

Here we go. . .

Nach den sommerlichen Reminiszenzen der letzten Beiträge mal etwas Aktuelles. . .
Blüten am 8.Dezember!



Aber vorab, Winter in Köln. . .

In anderen Teilen der Republik ist das ja nichts Besonderes, aber hier . . .
Selbst in der Nacht machen die Menschen Photos!

Dabei entdeckt man so Einiges. . . Vergessen!!!
44389
Hoffe, er nimmt es nicht übel!



Am nächsten Morgen zeigt sich das ganze Ausmaß der "Schneekatastrophe"! pale Das Büro eingeschneit . . .

In der Bildmitte das Isolationsmaterial für die Gewächshäuser, ganz dumm gelaufen dieses Jahr. . . Embarassed
44415


Im Gewächshaus herrscht jetzt eine "besondere" Atmosphäre, ganz anderes Licht. . . ( ich weis schon, dass kommt durch den Schnee auf´m Dach Wink )
44412

44420



Irgenwie, ich weis nicht wie, komme ich vom Hölzchen auf´s Stöckchen, Blüten und Knospen wollte ich zeigen!

Zum Abschluß schweife ich noch einmal ein wenig ab, drei Schafe im Schnee

Dornen

und "Frau Klein" sitzt im Lager auf ihrem Hocker, den Schal kurzfristig abgelegt. . .
wahrscheinlich völlig verschwitzt von der "Mäusejagd" (kennt jemand den Film, wunderbar, eine Empfehlung!!!)

Very pretty photos K.W. I feel cold looking at your greenhouse photos. I was wondering how you manage with two tiered shelves. Do the cacti on the lower shelves get enough light?

Also, I was curious what is on the other side of the big wall adjoining your property. Is that an electric railroad or power lines? If a RR I can understand the large sound wall. I hope to get working lights in my greenhouses soon so I can work out there in the winter and later evenings.

Brrrrr.....that looks cold!

And no, I will not delete the posting just because some i sin German. We have people from many countries here on the forum, some write in Italian, some in Spanish, some in German, and some (like me) in bad English Smile

What temperature do you keep the greenhouses? Are they all of polycarbonate construction?

Good morning Steve,

"Frau Klein" like´s your Avatar, or the friendly looking "dame" on it.
Very nice!
"Frau Klein" is´nt a beauty. . .
But she is a former wild living cat, lives near the tracks in a uninhabited house, until it was demolished.
After she lost her home, she find´s my greenhouse. . .
Now she lives in my business, below the terrace.

Only in winter the plant´s are "stored" there.

Yes it is a railroad, Köln - Paris and everywhere Wink . Highspeed trains use this tracks, but also heavy freight trains.
Köln has the busiest train station in Germany, > 1200 train´s a day.



Hope You get Your electricity work. . . cheers


Best wishes from

K.W. "near the tracks, behind the sound wall"

It is cold. . . anything below 18 ° Celsius is harassment for me! Wink


Good morning Chris,

thank´s you for your kindness - my English is much worse!
And I do not know what people can endure, so some in German. . .

I keep a temperature of minimum 3° - 5° Celsius in the greenhouse.
But realy 3 - 5 everywhere, not 5°C in the roof, and - 5°C at the bottom to the outer wall.

Yes they are all polycarbonate, some 8mm (my first house) and 16mm and a aluminum construction.


Best wishes

K.W.
