Growth takes time. Be patient. And while you're waiting, pull a weed. - Emilie Barnes

A garden is the best alternative therapy - Germaine Greer

Gardening requires lots of water... most of it in the form of perspiration.  - Lou Erickson

I'm not really a career person. I'm a gardener, basically - George Harrison

I suppose that for most people one of the darker joys of gardening is that once you've
got started it's not at all hard to find someone who knows a little bit less than you. -  Allen Lacy

I know that if odour were visible, as colour is,
I'd see the summer garden in rainbow clouds.

It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden, and it pleases my garden to make my photographs look professional.  ~Robert Brault,

In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there.  To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep and the hopes I breathe.  I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels.

Since my nursery is located on 4th floor of were I live, birds have always been a problem for my seedlings...thus i came up with this first project, it's not much...but I hope that this DIY will somehow solve my predicament

 materials that i used
sewing machine, scissors, thread, tape measure, pins, marker, zipper, old shelf

it's hard to measure the net, since the edges keep curling up

my solution, i put safety pins on the edges

after a couple of measuring, cutting and sewing... voila...MY MINI GREENHOUSE/NURSERY
