Sometimes I Just Sits

I rearranged so there's more than one seat.

That pot of foliage just beyond the little white pot with
pinkish stripes? Those are tulips!

Walmart had cut tulips in a bunch today for $5.24.
I was on the way out the door with ice cream and other perishables,
or I'd have gone back for some. As it was, I just asked the greeter
if she would call maintenance to mop up the drool I left.

I put the cart by the door, leaving
 a place for the cat to jump up
on the potting bench and a free path for
the dog to circle through.

Begonias

Kalanchoe. The last narcissus, on the floor
get planted outside as soon as this next
little freeze is over.  

The stool with the cushion to the
left of the chair is for climbing up to
water, but it's an extra perch as well

A last look upward as we go out the door.

  1. Your greenhouse is just bursting with terrific plants. No wonder you added a few places to just sit and enjoy it all. Loved the butterfly hanging from the branch atop your greenhouse. Nice touch.

  4. I sure love your greenhouse Nell. It is such a sweet, comforting place filled with lots of pretties, to sit and enjoy, out from the cold weather. It always makes me feel good being inside, via your blog.

    1. I'm glad you can visit over your coffee, if not in person, FL. In the morning, it will be cold but the sun will warm us in a hurry. I brought out the extra heater this afternoon.

    1. It's hard to integrate form and function. Hoses and empty pots and spent bulb plants that are going out are not attractive. It takes most of the room for growing so there's not much space for styling.

  6. I envy your greenhouse. Even more, when I see these pretty pictures. A wonderful place to just sit.

    Have a good weekend.

    1. The other thing that I can't show is how it smells. The paperwhites have lost their fragrance, but the hyacinths will be open really soon. Otherwise, it smells earthy.

  7. It is so nice to see vibrant life in your greenhouse. Outside winter has taken nature to sleep. Lovely begonia!

    1. We do have life outside but it's too cold to be out in it today. I planted ryegrass so I'd have green to look out on when all the annuals died and the perennials died back to their roots.

  8. You have a lovely greenhouse and a place to sit is a nice addition to view the beauty that surrounds. Greenhouse usually equals work and you changed that up a bit.

  9. HI Neiljean: You got the right idea and the place to do it. When the temp. is not 4 below or 4 above I like to go sit in te Gardens and dream.

    Have a wonderful evening,
    John

    Just to let you I can not comment to your blog, Goggle does not work need a method that asks for Name, EMail, URL. googe send me to blogger which I am Not.

  10. The reason that my comments form on Seedscatterer/Blogspot doesn't have a Name/Email/Website choice is that to do that I have to accept ANONYMOUS comments as well. As soon as I switch back to that format, the bots cover me with offers for every thing imaginable and some that are not.

    Did the drop-down menu not offer you Wordpress as an ID? Open ID has a choice for just about everybody in the universe.

    My other choice is to make visitors fill out a word verification with silly letter combinations which I abhor. It usually does not work the first time and involves scrolling back and forth, back and forth to get it to work.

    Another choice for you is to visit my Seedscatterer Wordpress blog which eventually has virtually the same babble and similar photos.

    I'm not overly fond of Wordpress but I continue to use it.

  11. I lived in the south, including SC, for many years and the title of this post really took me back. :o) Your greenhouse seems so welcoming and peaceful.

  12. This is my first winter with a large greenhouse. I'm having the best time growing all sorts of things though I do fret a little over the heat. I'm in zone 8b in Texas, so our climates are very similar. Any greenhouse advice?

  13. It looks very comfy and warm in your greenhouse. 15 degrees here last night.

  15. I'm not sure if this will post or not, it's my first time.
    But, I came across this while looking up Tacoma stans. Are you the same person who grows it in Southern Georgia? If so, might you have any seed for sale?

    1. I do grow Tecoma stans in South Georgia. I did not imagine that someone might want a large quantity of seeds, so I only saved a few. If you can provide me with an address, I'll share them with you.

  16. Your greenhouse is a lovely place to sit! Your plants all look happy to be there, too.
