Get out your Green Thumb~!


My sister Lynn who lives in S.C. and my brother Dave who used to live in Miami , Florida but now lives near my sister in South Carolina put this green house together.. in Lynn's backyard. They both have extra large green thumbs.. Look inside that green house they already have green plants growing..~! They are having so much fun.
I'm sure the seeds they will be planting soon will grow for the vegetable garden or the flower garden. I can never remember what flower is what~ So when my flowers are blooming and I can't remember it's name I take a picture and send it to Lynn and she calls me and lets me know.. This year I am ready with some markers.. I had some old metal knitting needles and I was going to throw them to the county dump ~ but I decided to recycle.. I'm going to use them for markers with laminated labels stuck on the needle.. Stick the rest into the ground and ta da ~ I will have a marker that well put a name on the plants I can't remember their names... I thought it was a great idea...
Have a tiggeriffic day...ta ta for now from Iowa...

I admire folks who have a green thumb and the stick-to-it-iveness to tend their seeds, plants, produce. :)

Love the knitting needle idea! I use bamboo skewers and wine corks -- I'll have to post it someday. :)

Thanks Annie. We were excited when we could put the plants inside at last. Some continue to bloom and my favorite is the Chinese Lantern Tree. The moon & stars are fun to see up through the roof at night when I go out to check on the heater.

That is one seriously cool greenhouse! I'd love to have one, but if I did everything in it would just die.
