greenhouse trip...

last night i had a fun night out with my mom and a fun group of women. we went out to a huge greenhouse just outside the city and had a tour of a part of the greenhouses and then a demo. i loved it. being in the greenhouses with all of the beautiful plants made me feel like there was some hope that spring was starting! and the colours. ohh man, makes me want to dye some new work right now! it was pretty inspirational. then after we walked around we had a little talk about herbs, and got to see what all of the different ones look and smell like. and then we cut a ton of them up and made a delicious fresh herb cream cheese. and then we got to plant our own little gardens. i picked a garlic chive, basil and lemon grass, and i'm pretty excited to add my fresh herbs into some cooking. i'm really starting to look forward to our garden this summer, i'll post more about that later, my man is quite the gardener and has grown his own fleet of impatiens from seeds!
this first photo is my little herb planter!

  8. I worked in a garden center and greenhouse for the past two summers and I'm very sad that I won't be returning this year! I always love how everything is laid out in such a methodical way. So organized but so lush and wild at the same time.
