Oh the happiness of a greenhouse

This is the view outside my window at the moment:
But a quick walk through that snow to the greenhouse there in the back, and now I have this perfuming the air in my office:
Worth every penny and every moment spent building the thing!

How right you are. Why would anyone spend money on a car when they could buy a greenhouse!

You don't use additional heating in the greenhouse, do you?

I wonder how low the temperature gets inside.

I agree. A greenhouse is worth every penny. It isn't like going on a fancy vacation; once in place, the joy just lasts and lasts.

Lucy, I did put a small space heater out there, just enough to keep it above freezing. But it stays quite warm on its own when we have sunny days.

The snow makes me sad for you but the greenhouse makes me jealous.

I keep thinking how wonderful a small greenhouse would be - and you have proved it this snowy windy morning.
