Here you go Johnjo, took a few so decided to blog it!
A Kew greenhouse, or glasshouse as it’s technically called.



Some inside shots

And our dear cottage!

As I mentioned, could do with being longer and lower with heating and thermostat in the right place!!

Didn’t notice that Sluggypup had sneaked in. Def something in the carrots, she went to full point!!

Had to get her out quick before she dug up the carrots!

Karen, this is not part of our garden, wish it was! Although it's right next to our cottage. Yep it's hot!

Ah! Sorry! You never know Lulu, you might have enough left to buy it and the cottage, once you've set up the Dog and Rose Inn, (Restaurant, GoY Arts Centre and Holiday Village) with your lottery winnings! If not, don't worry, we'll let you live above the bar! :))

Lulu, it looks fabulous, my father had one similar in the 50's & 60's. The name we had for it was a glasshouse. I did not hear them being called greenhouses till later in life. Maybe glasshouse was the Irish name we had for it. I have seen some lovely ones around, that are made from wood, galvanized, PVC and aluminium framed coloured in white ,silver, brown, but never in green. I still think the old Victorian style wooden framed were the nicest just like your neighbours one.

I think glasshouse was the original name for it! And I think wood is best as it stands out a bit!
And I think I may prefer to live above the bar, lottery winnings or not!!
And yes, apart from my garden on 3 sides............the kitchen garden and 'glasshouse' is a superb view!!
