The House That Himself Built

L IS FOR?



LONG DISTANCE LOVE AFFAIR !

I am away from home and garden at the moment but himself is keeping me updated with his progress in putting up my new greenhouse. We bought this at the Malvern Spring Show back in May at a special show price. I did not have any intentions of making such a purchase before the show and was sweet talked into it by himself. However I am smitten with it already - it's bigger and better than its predecessor whose removal still caused my eyes to moisten as it departed for pastures new. I can't wait to get home later this week to make a start getting everything sorted out and to sow some sweet peas.

You can linger over more posts on the letter L over at ABC Wednesday.

  1. LDA is tough, but if you get through it, it's that much more rewarding.

  2. Have to agree, LDLA are definitely difficult! But worth it in the end! Love the effort towards your green house!

    Together soon for you both, I hope!

  10. It looks great - and a good size. You will enjoy yourself when you get back!

  11. My one regret with my garden is there's no greenhouse - there was just room for a shed and a couple of cold frames. I shall enjoy yours virtually instead...

  12. Long distance IS tough; depends on howwe strong it was before the separation.

    Of course, I would LOVE the GREENhouse with a name like mine.

  13. Great idea to have a greenhouse. A cousin of mine lives in Norway and breeds the most beautiful flowers in her greenhouse, but also tomatoes and some vegetables. Good luck with your greenhouse!

  14. Oh Anna, I'm shamefully envious, foaming at the mouth. What a fabulous addition. I love the green trim and its size. Himself sounds like a real gem of a guy! I hope you'll post photos when you get back and are able to give it your personal touches.

    Oh what fun you are going to have with a bigger greenhouse and hasn't he done a good job of building it.

    My dream if I won the lottery, not that I do it, would be to have an Alitex or Hartley Botanical.

  16. How lovely, he really treat you nice, but what can make a man feel better than making something nice for his lady.

  17. Ooh, aah, WOW! What a lovely greenhouse and how nice of hubby to put it together for you. *Sigh.* My ex was never any good at anything involving physical labor... but to be fair, I don't cook much, either! ;-)
