My greenhouse and garden in progress...






















Well I tried to do a test post from Flicker..I have been trying to upload all my garden photos in a cluster like many people do......and.I was a total failure!!!...couldn't post pictures in a group only 1 at a time....so ....Today was a sunny morning...we have had fog and wind and rain for couple days and I decided to go outside and take pictures of my new greenhouse my husband made me out of old vintage windows and doors..I love it ..its rustic and differant and reminds me of a childs playhouse...I added flower boxes under the windows and a pair of curtians will soon flank the sides to hide the posts that peak out from the windows..I added shelves and racks for my vegi's that are already growing there...it has two long french doors on either side that swing up for ventilation . And when I open the door every morning the smell of the herbs especially the Basil..is just heavenly!


Jujube and Toby my 2 bad boys are both plotting daily on how they can go in and mark (pee) all over to make it thier own....thus the big latch we added...I added some pictures of my garden which is starting to bloom nicely...though I have been neglecting it these days..Lets hope the sun stays with us and no more wind!!!!! have a nice day!

Yard is gorgeous, and greenhouse is absolutely divine....I am so jealous.....yippers, I am. Lately I have been so busy trying to SELL something that I haven't had the chance to buy, or go to any good sales like you. The sale this weekend should be a good one and I'm definitely going to shop......xxoo jana

Are you taking reservations? I think I could spend the weekend in your green house !! Love it and how lucky to have a husband to make your dream come true. Your backyard is just beautiful and very creative. I have coastal weather envy!

I LOVE YOUR GREENHOUSE!!! It is just perfect - exactly what I want. In fact, I'm going to have my husband look at it. You and your husband are so creative.

Hi Marlene, Love your greenhouse. Wish you were here to help me decorate my sun porch. I use it to start my plants. I'm trying to find a couch that fits in and yet big enough for someone to nap on. I'm still thinking about a house and yard blog. The only reason I haven't is because I can't think of a name for it. I need some suggestions... I'm building a roadside cart to put my extra vegetables in and am wanting a name for it to. I'm thinking of "Green Genes Gardens" since my maiden name is Green and our family has a big history here. Hey I went to a couple of great yard sales too this weekend and got some very nice garden treasures. Sheryl

This is just lovely! You are so lucky to have such a magical greenhouse! That glass is gorgeous! The smell of basil is one of my very favorites.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Your garden and greenhouse are amazing. So colourful and inviting. Just beautiful.

I see what you mean about the similarities between your JuJube and our Benny. Aren't JRTs a going concern? :)
