plant life.

more and more plant life seems to be infiltrating my pinterest stream. i like this trend — these plants are unfussy and this bit of green easily infuses life into simple rooms that might be a little bare without them. these succulents and cacti aren’t easy to kill, either — which is always appreciated by green thumb, or lack thereof one.

    I’m loving this plant trend. Especially the cacti and succulents.
    I just recently purchased two planters to get my indoor gardening on.
    These photos are great for inspiration!

  2. Lovely!
    I’ve been known to have a bit of a black thumb when it comes to keeping plants alive and well. But I’m really keen on giving it another try this spring / summer. I started off with buying myself some loose, cut flowers the other week. And, this past weekend I picked up a potted indoor plant to give that a whirl. Next up, some herbs!
    Thanks for all the inspiration. Great start to my Monday ;)

    Yes! I don’t see the surge of plant posts and awareness as a trend but as a return to our roots. Viva la naturaleza! :) Great post!

    Even I can’t kill cactus and succulents! I am partial to succulents, I used them in the centerpieces for my wedding and they were heavenly. Thanks for the great post.

    This is along the line of some thoughts I was having yesterday afternoon. We are vacationing on the Alabama Gulf coast and went to look at a house for sale. The lot was close to 1.5 acres and all sand. The variety of tough, little coastal plants and shrubs present was astounding. With the exception of a few palm trees and hibiscus, it was obvious that everything else was self-established. It was beautiful and wild and appropriate. Nature is a marvelous landscaper when left to herself and her landscapes are filled with natural survivors.

    I could daydream about that kitchen with the window full of planters all day. And the mint green plant shelf. Great finds!

    I love this planes style, the first picture is really nice!!!

  8. I love what plants can do to a space! Only problem is what I do to plants… I need to get me some of those crochet ones that I can’t kill.

  9. I love this plant trend too, but I have a terrible black thumb so I’m trying to think of ways to incorporate greenery in to my house that will be a little more resistent to my neglectful ways. Succulents weren’t something I’d thought of, and I have a host growing outside on my garden wall that I could try to use, thanks for the inspiration!
