Reburbished Greenhouse

October 7th, 2015 by Estelle Mays

Barb, from Our Fair Home and Garden, saw a few antique windows a yard sale and set off on a path of creative genius. After gathering more windows from family and friends she set out to create her own greenhouse.  After seeing this, you might consider gathering and re-purposing some old windows yourself!

Persian Buttercups & Friends

Did you know the term Ranunculus actually refers to a genus of over 600 species of plants? These particular beauties are called Ranunculus asiaticus, aka Persian Buttercups!


This peculiar green pod, called Nigella damascena (but better known as love-in-a-mist), is another member of the Ranunculus family. Talk about an eclectic plant genus…


Gorgeous Bougainvillea!
