April Showers bring Greenhouse Flowers

Happy April, everyone!  Although it has been a rainy April for us so far, I can’t help but see the silver lining as I look forward to all the planting we get to do in our blank slate yard:

Um yeah, lots to do…  just how we like it ;-)!  #notoverwhelmingatall    So as I contemplate our landscaping and vegetable garden plans I have been thinking it would be so nice to have a greenhouse to start all my little seedlings in and that’s when I spotted this cutie on Liz Marie’s blog:

Isn’t it a beauty!?!  I love the quaint, eclectic look and of course, the white exterior and teal accents inside.

Exactly what my greenhouse dreams are made of!!!  Also, I love it because it reminds me of Joanna’s amazing greenhouse in Texas:

Major swoon!  That brick cobblestone floor, the white lanterns, the trees in terracotta pots… I’ll take it all, please!  😉  Good thing my husband can build almost anything I set my mind to and also that his thumb is way greener than mine ;-)!

Maybe my fascination with greenhouses began when I was a young girl in Kansas, playing store in my parents’ greenhouse that was situated down by our vegetable garden.  My dad didn’t really use it for a “greenhouse” but more for garden supply storage.  We sure had fun playing in and around that greenhouse and every time I think about those days I can still taste the raw rhubarb we used “sell” in our store and chew on – ewww!

Even though the above two greenhouses are my inspiration, the following may be our future reality:

Because  #practical…   It feels like we JUST moved in and there is so much to do both inside and out.  But it sure is fun to dream… and while the above two options aren’t totally terrible, I am still dreaming of an all white greenhouse with a brick floor and a vintage chandelier ;-).  You can head on over to my Veggie Garden Pinterest Board for even more garden and greenhouse inspiration by clicking the below:
