Hi Sally, I have a similar set up with the greenhouse which was an extension from Tort Lodge, which when I described what I wanted to a joiner, described it as a 'glorified rabbit hutch'!!! Well I guess it was but to me Tort Lodge was a torts des res!!!
The greenhouse came later and it certainly adds a better dimension to a torts day. The best is really at both ends of the season when it is a bit chilly outside but the greenhouse gives a chance of covered warmth and encourages a wander in the great outdoors.
Interestingly with my creep that during warm weather they tend to take themselves to Tort Lodge at the end of the day........ When things are chilly I find them tucked up in the greenhouse!!! X x x xhugs x x x
