"We Were Robbed!!!"

I took a look above my head this morning...Big mistake!

The greenhouse sits atop the roll top desk.  Said greenhouse has not been cleaned for a while.  Here in AZ dust piles up fast, but that is a LOT of dust!

I took it down and used some Windex on the outside.
It looked a bit better when I put it back in place, but...Some of the windows still looked a little streaked and foggy. The inside still needs doing.

Then the trouble started.  Tessie showed up and looked inside, rather than just at the outer surface.

She turned to me and whispered, "We were robbed! Someone took almost all of the plants!"

I calmed her down and told her that the plants had simply been moved to other scenes.

She went into a tizzy and demanded that I replace all of them immediately.

I tried to explain that it is the purpose of the greenhouse to furnish all of the other scenes with plants as needed.  That's the whole point of a greenhouse.

She looked down her nose at me and hissed, "The plants should all be replaced when you do that.  You have not been doing your job!"

I hate to admit it, but she's right.  I have not made any replacement plants in a couple of years now.

I guess that would be a good idea.  After all, who knows when we will need a spiderwart or a petunia.

So...Back down comes the greenhouse and out come the flower making materials and tools.

That will keep me busy and out of mischief for a couple of days.  I am putting Tessie in charge of the glue syringe and here's hoping that she glues herself to a chair somewhere.  Maybe the workroom would be a good place for it, since I plan to work in the bedroom... I can only hope...

See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey! Sometimes all we need is a gentle nudge from another direction to get us moving forward! Good on Tessie for being that "Gentle Nudge" for you.
Looking forward to seeing your greenthumbs at work!

I'm looking forward to seeing the creation of some plants. Nearly every project can benefit from a plant or two.
