Here I am again on Home Depot's Stretch Gardening Blog! Lynn Coulter, the head honcho of Home Depot garden blogging happened to see this charming photo of my old greenhouse decked out with lights in the snow and thought it was a great topic for this week's Garden Club posting.
She asked me to share my experience, with what I called a lovely, although short-lived, luxury...a greenhouse. And as the snowflakes fall here in Minnesota, forget the sugar plums, I am remembering those visions of lemon blossoms and scented geraniums. Here's the link.
Here's another tip to stretch the season: Visit local botanical gardens and zoos with glasshouses or conservatories during the winter, it's guaranteed to chase away the winter blues for a little while.
