Spring in the Greenhouse

We made a trip to the nursery and the greenhouse is looking so pretty.   The flowers smell  heavenly!

I am storing some of the bedding plants in the greenhouse until we get a chance to plant them in the back yard flower beds.  

  I have my flowers stored  in vintage carpenter tool boxes that we can easily transport them outside when it's time to plant 

For a little different texture and color ,  I am going to add some vegetable plants to our flower gardens this year.

I have a small table set for tea in the greenhouse today.    I used a burlap sack for the tablecloth.   The sack  has a cute "coffee" stamp on it.

I made a change to the potting table that you see in the left photo.    I added a burlap "curtain" to the front so I could hide the mess on the shelves that seems to be an ongoing!

Here is how the shelves are supposed to look    but sadly never!
I also have some  bedding plants stored in our repuposed chest of drawers until we have a chance to get them planted.

This old wash tub has a tomato plant and some curly parsley planted in it that will remain there until it freezes in the late fall.
  I also tucked in a a couple of 6 packs of verbena until we get them planted.     

While I was playing in the greenhouse today,  I made a fairy garden.   For more photo's and all the here

I have a rose garden in my flower "bed'
