Mom's Greenhouse

Mom’s Greenhouse


It was our favorite project

The house that we made

With plastic all around

For warmth on colder days


There was room to spare

Where she could put her plants

And they were watered there

Before drought had a chance


The house was warm all year

And with plenty light

With all the plants there green

And very much alive


She had a ficus tree

That she moved there too

Safe and covered all day

And also a little spruce


There were crickets chirping 

And a frog ribbiting some

In the house we prepared

For mom and her green thumb

    the greenery around it is.
    very wonderful noticeable.
    inside and outside. I bet they will be good neighbors.

          Love the poem wc - and love the little greenhouse - so doable for those of us who can't have great glass ones. Question - placed outside correct? If so, could it keep plants alive in winter?

            Thanks, Lorna. I think a little greenhouse so rewarding- for the gardener as well as those that made it.
