Retired Navy Seal Turned Plant Lover

I may always be talking about being the navy and how my life was as a navy seal. However, there are also some other angles of me and my personality that people would not expect from a retired navy seal.

For one, I would like to confess that I am such a plant lover. A green thumb, if I could say so about myself.

Now, I do not know about other plant lovers, but I for one, have always wanted to have my very own greenhouse in my backyard. It does not need to be big and fancy. It should only be just the right size enough for me to fill up with plants and enjoy pruning and spraying with fertilizers. It would also be a great place to relax and forget about the worries of work or at home. Having a greenhouse will also allow me to spend more time with my plants and have the chance to talk to them and ease on them my troubles and burdens of the day. It will also ensure that my plants grow healthier and lovelier than they ever could.

I am still in the process of saving up for that dream greenhouse and I know someday it will become a reality, just as much as it became a reality for a friend of mine that lives in Oxford, Al. She and I had been dreaming of our own greenhouses ever since we met each other and shared the same passion for plants and gardening. I’ll be heading over to her place by the end of the month to see her greenhouse and help her with a few more arrangements of the plants.

She shared to me that she had been saving for it for a very long while now and her husband gave her a generous amount for her birthday, to help with the making of the greenhouse. She immediately went ahead with the planning and construction while she secures her plants in their garage, as the plants wait for their new home to be completed.

She was fortunate enough to find a home for sale in Oxford that had enough space for the greenhouse to be built in. She recommended that I also get in touch with the real estate group that assisted her in buying that house, so that I could also be guided when it is my turn to purchase a home and lot that I could also built a greenhouse on.


Some people might think that spending too much for gardening is a waste of money and time. They do not know that having your own garden can be very helpful and that it is a very good way to escape the pressures of life and just be at peace with your flowers and shrubs and trees.
