Greenhouse Update & Back Yard Blooms

 
Our new greenhouse is getting plenty of use this spring.....the days are warm (80's)  but the nights are still chilly  (36-50)  Many nights we have to bring the outdoor plants into the greenhouse for warmth!   It gets pretty crowded in there sometimes....lol!
No,  that isn't me standing in the greenhouse....it's the scarecrow from out in the yard.   I have to keep her in the greenhouse most of the time so she doesn't get wet from the lawn sprinklers.  
On the left is how the greenhouse looked around Easter............On the right is how it looked this morning.
Easter.............................................................................................Now
 The two big pink petunia baskets are normally hanging in front of the studio.....It's pretty windy outside today,  so they are safe in the greenhouse.


 
These pretty white peony's were a Mothers Day gift from my daughter.....  they will get planted in one of the flower beds later this week.
The greenhouse squash plants (on the left) are loaded with blooms..........................Tomatoes are ready to harvest........
Iris are blooming........................so are the Dianthus..................................and some snap dragons too!
I have several beds of iris........................the snow balls are in full bloom...............and a clump of Torch Lilies
At Easter I had a chandy with faux roses on each side of the greenhouse porch.    The chandys have now been replaced with live ferns

Look over the roof of the greenhouse and see how green the tree's are compared to Easter.

  1. What a job carrying those plants in and out - your getting a work out. All your plants look very lovely. We are having very hot windy Santa Ana Winds this week so I am hoping they don't tear up my plants.
    You have a very lovely green house.

    Your plants are stunning and the green house is so perfect to house them in.....
    It is supposed to get down in the 40's over the weekend after we get close to 2 inches of rain so i am still holding off buying any flowers...... Probably next week.....
