A Lavender House....


It's a dream of mine to have a greenhouse one day. A beautiful, sunny space made of glass and timber that sits elegantly amongst the garden beds. I can imagine whiling away many hours in my greenhouse, as I tinker with my pots and plants - a little like a bloke may while away hours in his shed. If I had a greenhouse then I'd like it to look just like this one - with a wash of white as the backdrop, overlaid with accessories in all kinds of pretty colours. Perhaps purple will be my colour of choice - it's so regal like. As, after all, my greenhouse would be fit for a queen. Me!

Wouldn't it be lovely. I was about to throw away an old, falling apart dresser the other day but then suddenly saw it as a potting bench, piled with gorgeous pots, interesting string and scissors and other gardening stuff. It might be as close to a greenhouse as get.

A little bit of purple goes a long way...but this is not too much. Just perfect. Lively and fun.
