Glasshouse Update @ Brabourne Farm







Yesterday we finished painting the new shelves.  After trying many different colours I decided on a blue grey - it's perfect as it blends beautifully with the glasshouse.  One of my chores for today is to order spring bulbs - tulips, crocus, daffodils, alliums, hyacinths, oriental lilies .... the glasshouse will be a mass of gorgeous colour come springtime!

  2. Beautiful glass house! Do you mind if I ask where you got it? I'm not sure if I can get it where I live (Maine, USA), but would love to check into it. I really enjoy your blog, thank you for sharing!

  4. Leigh your potting house is truly spectacular no other word for it. You are going to have such fun in there. What a joy to see this in your beautiful garden. Fresh out of a magazine, I bet you can't stop looking at it. Sandy xx

  14. In our little yard, our meyer lemon tree is full of fruit. I picked some and put them in a dish in our guest room (my mother is visiting) and the room has a fresh scent.

  15. If this isn't the most gorgeous glass house I have ever seen I don't know what is! And then there is your garden..........Out of curiousity, and I might well be out of the loop here but do you participate in the open garden scheme? I would love to visit Brabourne Farm one day.........

  16. I'm so glad I found your blog. I've been reading (and looking) at a few of your older post of the property. The gardens are fantastic! I'm going to take inspiration from some of your photos for the gardens we are installing here on our southern US farm. Thanks for sharing and can't wait to spend more time clicking through your blog.

  17. Your greenhouse is beautiful! I have a little 10x16 discount version in my vegatable garden. But, seeing what you'd done fills me with ideas that can improve its look. Thanks for the inspiration!
