Little outdoor shelf for greenhouse orchids

Every summer my greenhouse gets way too hot for orchids. So I’ve taken to setting up a little shelf for them on the deck. The temperature being much more orchid friendly. I moved the few I had left in there today to the little shelf. I have several more to move out for summer from the house. 


These are the first full set of blossoms I’ve had on this unknown variety of oncidium. 
I think it is pretty exquisite. Four large branches are almost ready to flower on it. It will be so lovely. 


A new variety of geranium. Raspberry Twizzle. My sister and I both bought one. 
We have completely different taste in flowers, so that was a first.

Snake Plant flowers



I have had Snake Plants off and on all of my life. I bought this one to help clean the air in my house. They are the number one plant for air purification! I was stunned one day to notice a little spike. A flower spike!! I didn’t know they flowered!! A couple days ago the flowers opened. Aren’t they pretty. What you can’t see in the photos is that they open fully in the evening and then emit a very strong sweet smell in the air.
