We Made a Flower "Bed" for the Greenhouse


H & I are  tweeking the greenhouse...it's so much fun....hope you aren't tired of seeing it!    As we have added more plants to the green house,  we are running out of room!   Of course,  some of them will go outside when the weather gets warmer.
I decided that the wall the BIG green wicker chair was sitting on,  could be better utilized with the addition of a flower "bed"
I have a stash of foot/head boards....anyone surprised...lol!    I usually can find them for $5 each at a yard sale.    So, we dug out two head boards and a foot board .   The cream colored head/foot board match,  but the foot board was too see thru for me.     I stacked the foot board in front of the head board and used a different head board for the foot board....confused yet?    I forgot to get a picture of the bench part before it was assembled.   It was a drop leave coffee table that we had used on the patio in front of the wicker swing. 
I filled our flower bed with some of my favorite flowers.....added a Our Sittin Porch sign...
Little cutesy things,  like a metal flower..... 
and a garden angel.




To the right of the flower bed is a vintage metal Singer sewing machine base.  It has a big enamel sink attached that I have planted a "salad bowl" and some herbs in.    
The lettuce is coming up and the parsley plant is getting big.   The extra seeds are stored in the little drawers in the unit above the sink.

I found some bling picks to put in the hanging geranium basket.  ( Tuesday Morning.)

We have several buckets of tomato's in the green house.....these two are about 3' high and already have some tomato's on them.

Does anyone else love the smell of a tomato plant when you "swish" it?
The radishes are  up and I have a big pot of dill that is just starting to sprout  ( sorry,  I forgot to get a photo of the dill)
This is our pot of oregano and two tiny yellow grape tomato plants

Here is a galvanized pot of chives and a sweet little turtle....you've seen him before....he's been around a  long time.

The squash seed is coming up.   It is a seed made especially for container gardening...hope it doesn't get too big.   H also planted a hill of it in the regular garden.
I bought some mini rose bushes at the grocery store  to put in my "drawers" ,,,..
Our little grand, Kyleigh,  loves to work in the green house.   She has planted lots of wild flower seeds around the yard so she will have plenty to cut and make arrangements for the house.
As you all already know,   I love to change things around and the green house will be no exception.....lol!
Thanks for dropping by...come back soon!

xoxo  Penny
