I stumbled onto this site, a couple days ago, and my eyes are almost crossed from reading, I feel like I've found home, I lost my husband to cancer, had to sell our house, the new one I bought has a small greenhouse, I have gone succulent crazy, so many kinds,lol, caring for these plants has helped me heal, so hello to everyone, and happy growing!

Hi Loretta,

Welcome aboard here. Good for you and the greenhouse - I have a Keystone State friend who also has one and is a succulent fanatic, so you'll have lots of company.

Welcome, Loretta! Ro said it all, your husband should be glad to know you're amongst friends. A greenhouse is a blessing and will allow you endless opportunity to nurture and enjoy nature's magnificence. Please feel free to share and ask questions.

Hello loretta712 :)

Welcome. Great score getting a house with a greenhouse. I am brimming with envy just thinking of the possibilities. My condolences on your loss. It's great you have something to fall back on. Plants sure helped me in my time of need. I look forward to reading about what you do with your space.
