The one thing about gardening that I always did love, though, was the end result. Sitting in botanic gardens or greenhouses was always my favorite thing to do. I was always jealous of my parents' friends who had the lush gardens with stone pathways leading to a hidden seating areas - like a secret garden. I don't think anything makes the facade of a house more homey than a well-arranged flowerbed. So, ever since I was little, I thought the one thing I need to be happy in my home when I grow up, is a backyard big enough to build a greenhouse.
They've always fascinated me. It's bringing the outside in, but still having a clear view of this mass expanse of sky. What could be more perfect or calming after a long week at work? I really love visiting the conservatories in Chicago for that reason, but wouldn't it be nice if you had a little getaway like that in your own backyard? I always thought so and for that reason, I bring you this little collection of greenhouses!
You can find all these gorgeous greenhouses and more on my Gorgeous Gardens Pinterest board.
Do you have something that would make your dream backyard?
