A Room For All Seasons




 14511 Rooms-For-All-Seasons
 
It's natural to visualize a garden room on a sunny summer day, with breezes blowing the curtains and golden light streaming in.  Indeed, many garden rooms - especially transitional ones like porches, verandas, and some sun rooms - are strictly warm season spaces.  Conservatories were created as a way to make an indoor space for potted plants that would stay warm during cold winter months.

One of the greatest joys of any kind of garden room is being in a leafy, light place when everything outdoors is cold and gray.  For avid gardeners, winter can be a frustrating season.  But, spending it in a home created garden room, tending to indoor potted plants or sorting see packets and browsing thru catalogs, can make the season a restful interlude.
 
For those who enjoy gardens less actively, the opportunity to be in a room that recalls the beauties of the growing season - sipping a cup of tea while gazing out at the snow covered landscape or listening to rain on the roof - is one of life's greatest pleasures.

There is nothing more comforting then the sight of bright seed packets on a cold winters day.  Turn your thoughts to gardening and dream.
Creating a garden room is easy to do.  Find a space like a porch where you can set up a table or two with potted plants & saucers.  Add a chair for relaxing and enjoyment.  Force bulbs in winter and fill with lush potted flowers in summer.  Add a small desk if there is room to stock your garden books and magazines.  Can spring be far behind????
