Pretty Houseplants.

Every year about this same time, I start to crave green. The gray days, wind and rain have me aching for the freshness + newness of Spring. To combat those achy feelings I've been filling the cozy brick house with plants. There are Spring In A Can's growing in the windowsills and just this morning while grocery shopping I snatched up a couple of shamrock's and a little plumosa fern.



The impact is HUGE. Even tonight, as I sit here at the computer with a little shamrock on my desk I can't help but feel a bit happier. And in a way, I'm grateful for the gray of Winter. It makes Spring all the more lovely.

  2. ohhhh, anything to make it feel like spring is getting closer!

    next time you are plant shopping - search for 'hindu hoya ropes,' they are a succulent {famly to the cactus}, so you don't have to water them very often...my type of plant! they have the most stunning blooms that are these little star shaped pink velvet flowers with a pearl in the middle! seriously. and, their texture/shape is brilliant. i own 3, and could easily fill my whole house with them! love 'em!

  3. When my husband and I first got married, we moved into a little condo with a balcony. We had a potted cat's claw vine that took over the whole porch, and at the base of the vine we had a shamrock plant. Those plants are what I miss most about that condo. There was no way to take the cat's claw pot with us without killing it! :(
