Autumn Work Days....And A Greenhouse Update

Mrs. Caul E. Flower shows off her Autumn attire...

Dearest Readers,
Autumn has arrived here in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains ushering in a season of abundant harvest and hurried preparations to ensure that all is snug and cozy here on our little homestead. I thought you might enjoy a few glimpses of our humble home sporting her new colors....

Dearest has toiled for many months to erect a garden toolshed and a greenhouse.  Isn't he a darling!
We just started painting the shed...it will barn red with white trim and I have some Victorian fretwork that will be painted the house colors to add a little panache!  The greenhouse will be painted the lighter shade of  blue/green and the trim will echo the trim on the house.
What do you thing about our recycled windows?  I wasn't sure about all the different styles
of windows looking quite right. 

We will put a lovely colored glass transom above the soon-to-be-installed door!
As you can see, I am taking full advantage of this wonderful space....keeping my potted porch plants safe from the cold.
What a blessing to live this life!
Yours so kindredly,
Shan
