Update :)

Here it is mid Feb. and so much has already happened. Where has the time gone? I'm smelling spring??? Not yet, just a lot of rain :( But i have the spring itch :D Ready to start more projects for the summer.

2012 was an amazing year! So much happened last year. After we got home from the wedding, we started on the greenhouse. My husband is the grandson of the original Meaney's Florest here in Tuscaloosa and well, its always been his dream to have his own greenhouse and we made that happen. :) I loved seeing the look of a dream come true in the eyes of my husband. <3 

The original Meaney's was in Alberta. Then it was moved to 5 points where it stood until the land was sold. It was replaced by a Walgreen's.

 This is almost the finished project. I still have to finish painting the windows and doors. The front door is pink now. :) I had to have the columns in the front. It's starting to look like a dollhouse more than a greenhouse. Mom said she would live in it. lol 
 It is fully functional. It has running water and power. If im right i think it ended up being 20x24. There are two heaters that keep it about 32 in the winter and a fan to circulate the air.
The counter was extended another 4ft and a sink was installed to do the prep work for planting. We also have extended hoses to water the hanging plants. All the windows came from the old home of his grandmothers and the store. And they work and can be opened at any time. However they are a bit brittle and need some repairs. But i was ecstatic to have a part of his families heritage now a part of our lives.

 Along with the GH, i also decided to paint my antique wagons to use when we plant our garden this spring. so here is the before and after pictures. i was proud of how nice they turned out. :)

 My sweet husband removed the wheels and taped it up for me. He is the best!

 I decided to use a retro turquoise blue from the 70's. I love little flashback of the old.
After wheels are replaced, they are ready to be used. :) And they look great sitting in front of the GH.

I'm stopping this post for now and will start it back up in a few.
Talk Soon
