Soooo... We officially have a place in Vancouver. It's about 5km from downtown and a five minute walk to all the amenities we could need. The price is absolutely fantastic! It's a basement apartment but the owners seem great and said it was fine to leave some plants outside.
I went into the UWO Greenhouses today for the last time. I had to drop off about 70% of my plant collection but picked up a few more things I had growing there. This includes a Musa basjoo (banana) with a 1.5m tall trunk (4.5ft) with similarly sized leaves. I'll probably cut off the leaves, remove the pot and wrap the roots for transport. Mr_subjunctive at Plant are the Strangest People has some good suggestions for moving plants so if you ever need to, he's the one to ask.
What's crazy is that a few days ago we thought we'd be going for June 1st. Then out of nowhere we find a great property available for May 1st. Craziness. We've been rushing to get ready but it will be well worth it. I'm concerned about my plants. I figure most will be alright but need a few weeks to recover.
I probably won't be posting many comments on other blogs as well. Don't worry though, I'll start up again in full force when I'm there. :) I'll try and respond to comment made on this blog. Anyway, I hope everything is going great for everyone and that you enjoyed these randomly placed last images of the greenhouse! I just remembered we haven't dealt with our aquarium. Anyone want some Mbuna? You'll have to pick them up though!
