Me, too! So pretty!
Too bad you can't grow a greenhouse from seed! Hilarious!

@Danita
Wouldn't it be nice if we could grow a greenhouse from seed? I would love to have a really nice one! Wouldn't have to be huge but I would want a sturdy one big enough to stand up and move around in. Maybe someday. Meanwhile I guess I should be grateful there are plenty of beautiful Salvias, Agastaches, and other plants I CAN enjoy in my gardens. Smiling

It would be nice, Judy! Green Grin!

I have a nice, big avocado pit from dinner. A seed that big should grow into a good-sized greenhouse! Hilarious!
