Pardon me, where has the day gone. Oh I know, I have been sitting out in my hot house chatting with friends and admiring my garden.
Here is the wonderful creation made mostly from recycled materials. The door is the old front door from my school.
It was very hard to photograph as it nestles into the garden quite well and is cosy amongst the plants.
The old window came from Clunes, which is a small town just outside Ballarat. When I bought it for $10.00 the seller asked me what I was intending to do with it. When I said I was going to make a hot house, he offered me 2 more windows and a sliding door.
The planning and the dreaming was all part of the process.
If you can't find me ever, you know where I might be - yes on my special seat, looking out onto the garden.
Another bonus was that it has all been paved. A friend gave me some left over pavers which was just perfect for the bottom of the house. It has made a wonderful finish inside.
Can you see the palm my mum bought me. She said all hot houses needed a palm.
Here you can see it better, and a red geranium in a pot outside the front door.
This beautiful rose is called "Dearest"
. . . and this is the view from my back door.
I LOVE IT!
