The Good, The Not So Good and The Unfinished..

Are you guys sick of hearing about the garden yet?
I promise after this post that I won't bug you for a while about it
...at least until the fall when we really get going.
But I wanted to show you how it all ties in with the Glass House.
Looking through the gates this is the main focal point....our little house made out of old windows that my sweet husband built for me.
Remember I told you all about it on my very first blog post.
Someone (me) really should clean that birdbath....I swear I fill it with fresh water everyday.
I'm afraid to bleach it because of the birds.
Maybe I should have it pressure cleaned.
Looking into the glass house.

This is coming around the corner off the back porch
The long term plan is to edge the walkways with landscape timber and to plant a border of flowers.
I made the little candle holders out of dollar store ivy bowls.....just twist two heavy wires around the lip to form a little basket top.
Then I just hung them on little shepard's hooks I had.

Side view of glass house

I hung this from one of the trees so that when we entertain
out there I just need to put a little table under it and it can become a drink station.

I found it in this really cute store in Georgia called Refind,
but I recently heard they had gone out of business...that's sad it was such a neat store.

I believe it's off an old lamp.
Just place a candle in there and it creates the prettiest glow

Now, here is where I tell you the Not So Good!
I've learned allot about Gardening lately and the number 1 thing I have learned is that
I know absolutely nothing about Gardening!!!

My Mother and I attended a Vegetable Garden Seminar a couple of weekends ago and as I sat there listening to these very knowledgeable Garden experts i was counting off in my head all the mistakes I made....OPPS!

Now is the time to tell you two of my major faults

1. I never research and plan out a project first...I am WAY to impatient for that.

2. I almost always choose form over function

So, therefore I am just now finding out that my hopes of harvesting beautiful heads of lettuce won't happen until sometime in the fall/winter. My cute little beds will have to sit partial empty until then. But that should give me plenty of time to re-till them and fill them with more compost...another mistake I made.

Until then...this lantern makes me happy. We found this in a great little antique store in Sea Island, Georgia...the same place that the gates came from.

This would be the gates....let's hope the vines I've planted
will cover up that ugly chain link fence very soon!

Can't have to many Fleur- de- lys in the garden

So there you have it!
Our little garden that is still far from finished.....but it's been a great lesson in patience for me.
The kids and I were ecstatic when we saw our first tomato on the vine.
And, I think that's how we will feel every time we notice something new.
So that's okay that it's not done, full to capacity and lush yet....
everyday we can look forward to a new garden surprise!
Be Sure and stop by to see Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday and look at all the wonderful things.....http://romantichome.blogspot.com/2010/07/show-and-tell-friday.html

Wow - just stumbled across this post - I love this little place and the fact that your husband built it for you? Amazing. I will be spending time on your blog looking up more posts this wonderful little sanctuary.

The Robin and Sparrow said...

Okay, I hope you don't mind that I virtually spent some time in that amazing glass house! I added your design to my "someday" folder full of outdoor glass nooks. Thank you so much for the wonderful, beautiful, inspiration!

This is exactly what I told my husband I wanted. He will do it...if he knows what is good for him, but I need to know what kind of supports your used for all those windows? Just wood studs? I can't tell.

Rebekah Merritt said...

What vines did you plant to cover the chain link?

sharon hazen hall said...

I adore your glass house. My husband built me one too...only out of glass french doors...It is my favorite place. We put cable TV and a phone line out there. I think we are kindred spirits and have adorable husbands.

tanya said...

How did your husband attach the window to each other to build the walls?

You have good articles here! If anyone here looking for loan @ 2% rate in return to buy home or other financing needs, I want you to contact Mr Benjamin On 247officedept@gmail.com Also On Whats-App + 1-989-394-3740When I was introduced to Mr. Benjamin, I was entering the market as a first time buyer. Naturally,my needs were a bit different and I had loads of questions. Before he sent me my pre-approval letter, he called to speak with me about what it meant and what could change. He made himself available to me at pretty much any hour via email and texts. He was very responsive and knowledgeable. He’s also very straightforward. I explained to him what my expectations were in terms of closing time and other particulars. He said he would meet those expectations but he surpassed them. I closed so quickly my realtor and the seller of course were excited about that. But as a buyer I appreciated being walked through the process of Mr Benjamin loan offer. From pre-approval to closing- the journey was so seamless and I consider myself lucky because I’ve heard horror stories. I recommend him to anyone looking for a loan. Everything was handled electronically expediently and securely
