My Green (and Blue) Garden House

Tom has been busy building in the garden ... 

and here I can reveal 

my Green House :)

Made from recycled windows and wood - I am so pleased.   He has done a brilliant job.   It's warm enough to sit in and bring a small table in to, but I've high hopes for the tomatoes and lettuce and chilli I've planted.  

We've thought of umpteen names for it, the Tardis coming up tops, but as my office already has that nickname it can't be used twice lol so I've opted for the Green House :)  

I'm gradually working on this wee area, the raspberry patch is swamped with ivy - and the raised bed has peas and onions coming on if we ever get enough heat for them to grow.  So this will eventually be a wee secret garden and a great sun trap.  

He also made this cracker trellis substitute from driftwood - my idea I have to boast, but he did the putting together - absolutely love it :)    

The rose looks a wee bit windswept - we're having fierce winds here at the moment and it gets very cold the minute your out of the sun - but the horse's head looks soooo good - he makes me smile every time I go past. 

Scratching my head now to see what's next on my list :) ... mwah haw haw ... 


  1. I love your 'The Green House' and trellis - brilliant!

  2. Love, love, love it. We've thought about something like it too, but not sure where to put it on our steep block. Hope we see your produce from it. Take care & hugs.

  3. Hi Fil - what an amazing greenhouse, outdoor work area - wonderful amount of light - great idea with the windows etc. Your trellis is a delight to see - as too the rose ... stay safe and enjoy the fruits of your hard work - the earth rewards us. Cheers Hilary

  4. Excellent. Looks like a place that you can hideaway in from the world and decompress for a spell.


Do drop me a line ... I love to read your comments :)
