By Popular Demand....Greenhouse Update

After many requests for a greenhouse tour...
...Here is the view from the front door first thing this morning....
It was a fairly warm day today.....not too hot or sunny....so I got busy and pulled some energy out of my butt and brought all of the plants out for some fresh air.
Yea...(groan) the hockey net is still there....I didn't show the close up of the black puck scars that are all over the siding....(he calls them goals....I call them near death experience if they don't come off!)My big pots for this year....
that's the view when it is empty...
5 hours later and the floor has been removed....(the foam tiles anyways...lol) things have been hosed down and it is time to slowly move my aching body to put them all back inside (we still have frost at night here for about 3 more weeks)

I am very disappointed in my greenhouse this year....(a story I will save for a later post)

The hanging pots got haircuts...so that they would fit back inside...lol speaking of which...why is it that it all fit before I took it out.....?????
I bought a tray of Calibrachoa....as I can't get seed for them...and will most likely need to buy more trays of other things that did not do well this year....but the hanging baskets are doing okay...
And that's all she wrote!

Wow, sorry to hear you are disappointed with the green house, from this view it looks great. I can't remember, do you use all the plants in your own garden or to you grow for others too? I know how much energy and passion it takes to accomplish such a task, you are an accomplished gardener. By the way it is good to have you back! Happy Gardening!~Jacque

I was ready to call all the gardners in Canada to find out if all the flowers ate your butt.
I didn't know if you had any of those people eating plants. What's up! I see, I see. I want one of everthing. I have missed you girlfriend. I know, we know you are busy this time of year; but you gotta let us know if your're kneel deep in flowers. Toots these are so beautiful and I will show you what little I hav accomplished but they look so.......... well you know they need a couple of weeks. Glad your're up there and at them; I know you must be extremely tired. One look at at that green house and it makes me exhausted.
Love you girl.

Toots, supper time is anytime you want it to be. And you never need an invitation; you hear me. Just hope on a plane and I'll let you shower when you get here. Nice clean sheets and you'll feel like new again. Well, hubby might keep you up all nite talking about gardening and Canada. Talk to you soon.

trash talk said...

"Disappointed"? "Okay"? Are you kidding me. It looks Fab U Lous!
I know I'm new to your blog and I may have just missed this, but do you do this for a living or as an artistic output, cause girl, you are the master. To live where you do and have everything just waiting to go, I am so impressed!

They're beautiful! I couldn't believe you hauled all of them out & then had to put them all back! Your poor body must have been so sore!

So what's up with the greenhouse??? And what didn't make it???

Check out my amaryllis - the fertilizer worked miracles!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Oh Tootsie I don't see how you can be disappointed with all those wonderful plants in your greenhouse!

A friend gave me 3 different old fashion rose bushes and an old lilac today - we got those planted but like you there is still frost here for 2 more weeks.

Been thinking of you friend and praying!

I hate it that you still have some cold nights. It dosen't give you mush time just to enjoy the flowers, till the cold weather comes back. We have had so much rain that I think I am going to start building a big boat. I tryed to paint the deck and the rain washed the paint off. Now we have to do it again. Kathy

Darla said...

Ah Tootsie, it all looks wonderful! I love it, can't imagine why you would be disappointed.......I do hope you take us along as you plant them in the ground and hang them around your yard. It is so nice to hear from you!!! Three more weeks of frost?! GEEEZ.

Mary at My New 30 said...

Beautiful! I can't imagine why you are disappointed??? That looks like a dang nursery! Whew... I'm wore out thinkin' about the work you have ahead of ya.

Chrissy said...

O.K. so you did this post just to make me green with envy right??? If over the summer I can plant on thing and not kill it I will be happy...but look at you!!! I think it is amazing, I would love to have that!!!! Got to go look at my garden now, you know the 4 pansies I bought the other day...could take me hours!!!! Talk soon!

onlymehere said...

Wow, I'm so impressed. I can't believe you would haul it all out and then put it all back! I bet you're sore after that. Was Busy any help while you did this?! LOL! You have such a beautiful passion for plants. I wish I could fly you down here just for a week to help me get this stupid yard in shape! Maybe if you just talked to my flowers they might not all be dead! Pretty sure we've lost about 1/3 of our plants in the rock garden. The early bloomers just didn't come back but the secondary ones are now blooming. Oh well, guess I better get motivated and get some new plants in there soon! Cindy

Betty said...

I think they look beautiful and well loved! I am so happy you are in your greenhouse.
Maybe the RMS chat ladies need to plan a raid!

Tootsie your greenhouse looks heavenly to me, I could look at it all day! Your really are full of energy!

RainGardener said...

Nice - your greenhouse is packed as packed can be. When you set them all out in the yard it looks like a super store! I'll bet the nurseries love to see you coming! You work soooooo hard getting them ready.

Love Where You Live said...

Beautiful!!! What a bounty of blooms you have. (thanks for indulging me as I talked about my "baby" on my last post. You have your own "baby," so I know you know how it goes. You love when it's done. (smile) SO, I'm thinking about a yoga/garden room. So not just a greenhouse. Found it interesting that you suggested the garage kit. And it looks like you did hard woods? You did your own design? I look forward to your post on this!!!

Love Where You Live said...

Tootsie, Say, did you notice the rose on my blog -- the one pictured on the post of my house? Do you recognize it? thx again, -s

The Muse said...

I am thinking of you puttering about blissfully lost in time among the blooms...!

Please know my spring blessings are being sent your way!

Bellamere Cottage said...

Blessings,
Spencer

Julie said...

That was a big huge job...but I'm sure you enjoyed playing with all your plants! I know I would after that winter you had! I can't believe it is still frost at night there...it is so hot and muggy here during the days!!!
Have a happy Fertilizer Friday, Tootsie!!!

Lori Bee said...
