Good evening dear cacti-friends,

what we are experiencing in the last two weeks is an ugly autumn - windy, cold, humid, dark.
Today I finally put all the plants, the last one´s in the greenhouses.
The terrace is not cleaned up yet and the greenhouses are not yet prepared for a deep frost.
But before January there is seldom frost - and right now the devil is in business. (Is that correct for hellish a lot of work?)
Today some pictures from inside and tidy up.
Not as beautiful and glamorous as flowers in summer. . .

This small contribution I have written as an answer in another forum. . .


Nero Wolfe!


Good evening dear cacti friends,
when I got my first cactus in 1968 - an Euphorbia hybrid Wink - my passion for cacti and other succulents began.
I got this euphorbia and some other plants from an elderly lady, she was a wonderful gardener.
I learned a lot from her about gardening, plant care and the soul and nature of plants.

This passion has accompanied me throughout my life.
School, university, service, family, friends, my wife, other hobby's, house, traveling, cooking,
our animals never came too short anyway.

So why, a life offers many possibilities and 24h a day!

If necessary, there was also help with the care of the plants.
When I already had some plants in 1970 I was dreaming of a greenhouse.
My sister gave me the first Nero Wolfe book by Rex Stout.
Nero was like I wanted to be, I was a kid !!! Smile , intelligent, well-read, sharp-tongued, loving good food and
he had greenhouses for his plants on the roof of his house.
That was awesome, working downstairs and doing the hobby on the roof. . .

OK, it took a few years -

- but I did it. (and now I have Nero´s suit size too)

What a wonderful place that must be! And to be able to put the work aside for a few minutes and look at the plant if you feel like it!

Good evening Vladimir,
in this Wikipedia post https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nero_Wolfe
you can find information about the book and Nero Wolfe.
There are many stories from Rex Stout about Nero Wolfe, I have read all the books.
There are also different films, I did not see any.
Will not let my imagination and ideas from the books be destroyed.

I have never seen the greenhouses of Nero Wolfe.
But I know exactly what they look like, they are in my head - for 50 years. . . Very Happy Smile


Best wishes

K.W.

Yes, sadly all the plants are in my greenhouse now and have been there for a few days . Just in time as we're experiencing heavy frosts now in the UK. The heaters are working 24/7 and bill mounting up 24/7. affraid  If I don't get another chance to comment I wish you K.W. and your Family, and to all our regular members, a Very Merry Christmas & a Prosperous New Year. santa
All the best Derek.
