The Orchid House...

At last I am re-purposing the old unused aviary into an orchid shade house to house some of the orchids in my collection...


 First step - 
Clean it out, remove old bird toys and perches...
 Place planks in position ready to make into a bench for the pots to sit on...
 Isn't the patina of this old wood gorgeous?
 This is actually an old fence that was in a skip at a new build site waiting to be dumped!!
I am quite impressed with my rescue skills...
the tradesmen however thought I was absolutely bonkers!
But I was super excited with my find, 
 and had enough wood for the orchid house as well as for 
  a potting bench in the garden shed...

'Jade' the Indian Ringneck parrot who resides in the next door aviary
 was not too impressed by all the banging in the construction process...

But it turned out FAB...
Now I just need to increase my orchid collection to fill all those empty pots!

Both in oils...

And new in the gallery...
'Lakeside'
                                                  Also in bright funky colours, this is acrylic on canvas.
