Easter Bank Holiday Weekend Fun!

This weekend we have painted and built our greenhouses. The kids loved getting involved with the painting and as the greenhouses come with double sided plastic covering on the windows, it didn’t matter if they got a bit paintbrush happy!

We used Thorndown Paint which was honestly one of the easiest paints we’ve ever painted with, it went on so well and the colour was really rich. Having greenhouses for the first time made us adults feel properly grown up. They look so lovely in our gardens and as they are against the wall, they don’t take up too much room. We just can’t wait to see seed trays lined up inside, they feel a bit empty at the moment.

Next week…….we get sowing!
