The Potting Shed

Mr. Sweet and son, David, built a workshop, storage room and greenhouse...
all in one building, back in 2015.





Some call them greenhouses...
some of us call them
 potting sheds...
I love the term potting shed....it's much more romantic.

In 2015, father and son  embarked on THE BUILDING
and, boy, do we all love it. 
 
 
 
 
 
I went out today (4/23/'18 )
to see how things were blooming out there.





...when I go out and see how pretty all the blooms look, I get sooo anxious to put them outside...

on the patio...
around the pool...

but we've been known to have a light freeze in April so we need to wait until the middle of May.

 ...this little pretty pink flower came up in the gravel on the ground
of the potting shed.....
probably from a seed dropping from a potted plant.

 Everything is looking pretty good out there...
the geraniums are always so pretty...
and easy to grown.


I worked up an appetite  just looking .....
 


 ...back inside for a Broccoli Slaw Salad and fresh fruit.

Hope YOUR day is going good....

The Summer House Bath








 I don't think I've ever shared photos of the one bath in the Summer House.

This is a nice sized bath...
no bath tub which doesn't bother me at all as
Mr Sweet and I always took showers.


 There was a tiny tiny shower here when we first moved in. 

I don't have a photo of the small prefab shower so I borrowed this one from the internet....

this one is almost just like the one we had...

When Mr. Sweet got so sick that he couldn't stand in the shower,
our sweet and generous son and his wife had a big new shower built that was wheel chair accessible.
SOOOO nice.

















 All tile.....the same pattern that's on the floor.



and plenty of room for a spa stool...








No glass door nor the track it would need so that a wheelchair could go in and out easily.


I've never had a shower curtain before but I really like this one from Target.

 Mr. Sweet and I bought this antique wash stand in 1961, the 2nd yr we married.

Since this bath had a sink with no cabinets,
the washstand was perfect...


Don't worry that without cabinets around this sink that I have no place for towels and etc...

This is a whole room full of closets on both sides...
it's between the bath and the entry to the living room...

More cabinets than I know what to do with...and I love 'em.











It's such a great bath....
so easy to clean....
I'm really proud of it.
