My proper thicket!!!!

I did a post a couple days ago and right after I posted it I went in to correct an error and lost it.  I will try to repeat the highlights.  Giving up my forest was hard but I am planting a proper thicket to compensate.  Here you see the beginning with 3 Oregon grape, 2 black currants, 2 Clavey's honeysuckle bushes, 1 quince, 1 viburnum, 1 elderberry, 1 bird cherry and one dwarf crabapple.  This thicket will eventually displace a LOT of lawn. Every thing I planted  provides habitat and food for birds.  I think it deserves a name...."Bird Haven Thicket"

I also decided I have enough space for a small 6x8' greenhouse.  I would love one like this glass one which you can actually buy as a kit for about $6000+.

But I am going for something less spectacular and will order it when the farm sells.  It takes 6-8 weeks to come and I would love to have it in place by fall so I can use it in the spring.  More grass gone.  Haven't told DH about this yet.

Next week will bring a dramatic change in weather and will be in the mid to upper 80s so I must plant like crazy this week.

Can you give any details on the greenhouse you've decided on? I keep eyeing those on a discount tool chain ad, but they don't seem like they'd be able to last long, or hold up to much wind. What I'd really like to do is put one on the end of the garage, but others don't seem to share my liking for that idea.
