Greenhouse News

Here are pictures of the inside of the greenhouse with stuff in it. This is a
"Lemon Fizz" Scented Geranium on the right and a Lemon Verbena on the left. In the center is a cute soap holder with lemon verbena soap in it. (Can you tell I like lemon?)(Correction:The geranium is on the left and the verbena is on the right.)

Here is the bench that my friend Kim made me last summer. It fits on the back wall like it was made for there. On the left are two lugs from Van Lierops Bulb Farm. I has bought five of them to in the greenhouse. I wish I had six of them. I also like clay pots and galvanized tin buckets.

This is a plant that I got at the Seattle Flower and Garden Show this year. It's called a "Carmichaella odorata". It gets little white and purple pea like flowers. Can't wait to see what it looks like.

This is my potting bench that Mark have me for Mother's Day about 10 years ago. I just love it. Its been under the grape arbor for about five years. Its a treasured possession.

This is my flower frog collection. I really do use them.

This is the mini greenhouse that we had in the house to start seedlings on. It now has a permanent home in the "big house".

Ok, here is the whole bench that Kim made me. I should tell the story of how it came to be. Paige (his wife) were at Watson's Nursery and we were just looking around and and came across a garden bench that I thought was nice and I told Paige I would love to have it. She said Kim could build that so easy. So later that day she went home and brought Kim back to the nursery and they took a picture of it and Kim went home and built two of them, one for her and one for me and brought it over to me. I was so thrilled. Kim is such a nice guy. Thanks again, Kim.

This is another view of the potting bench from Mark.

So this is my new hangout. What I love so much about it is that I can see out. In my garden room that I have its dark and has small windows and is cold. I am warm and cozy and I can look at what's going on outside. Such a blessing!

Well, I had to have a sleep study last night and am very tired and am going to take a shower and get all the goo out of my hair and try to take a nap. Ta ta for now.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I'm so glad to have found yours now. I can't imagine how exciting it is to have this nice big greenhouse. You have so much space in it. I look forward to seeing what you grow in it.
I'm just north of Seattle, we ended up having a gorgeous day here. A little cold but lots of sun for a change. My sister used to live in Puyallup on South Hill, but they moved to Idaho a couple of years ago.
