Winter fatigue
February 10, 2010 10:53PM
Greetings from a snowy Pennsylvania. This has been a snowy week here, no signs of spring outside at all. The greenhouse today is like a snow cave. Nights are near -10C, the days are near 0 C.

This is the outside on Feb 6. One can just see the Cholla on the right in the photo.

This is the same corner today after new snow.

Inside, it looks like this:

And I have one small Gasteria that is wishing for its African homeland, but will do what it can to bring spring.

Hi Pete,

We heard about the snow in the news sourire

Thanks for the photos, and good luck!

it seems that the great cacti on the third photo curves to avoid the window.

In belgium we have less snow but it is very cold since november....

Thank you Yann and Jean-Luc. This week we had about 55cm snow on 6 Feb and then we got about 50 more cm yesterday.

The tall cactus (Stetsonia coryne) does lean a little, so when I put it inside I can place it closer to the window. All of the plants are put out for the summer, when it gets here.
