I’m happy to be back to show some new additions to my plant family for the latest Urban Jungle Bloggers edition. The topic is “Back to School – plants in your workplace”. Well workplace for me isn’t quite defined. I have two places at home where I work from; a corner table in my bedroom when the household gets too rowdy, and the kitchen table. They say that many good businesses began at the kitchen table. I keep reminding myself of that as I dream very hard of having my very own studio.
My most beautiful addition would be this cactus. I gave it to my husband for father’s day recently. If you’re in Auckland, you must go and check out the incredible selection of cacti and succulents at Indie Home Collection. At the same time, I also purchased a little succulent that looks so pretty planted in a decorative glass jar, along with this very delicate green plant in a white planter that was sitting empty for a while.
The cactus takes prize position on the vintage file in the corner of the room. I tend to shift plants around a bit and I have a few that end up here, along with bunches of flowers at other times. It’s certainly a very green space inside and has the view of my back deck which I wrote about here for another edition.
Before I go, I would like to wish Urban Jungle Bloggers a happy 1st birthday! I’ve always loved plants in the home but I have to say, since joining in on the challenge, I’ve become a little plant obsessed so thank you for shining your green light on me Judith and Igor!
