jungle of succulentsThursday, November 05, 2015
Its been a little over a month since my last post on my plants (see here) which in my mind is more than enough time to not feel super crazy about sharing a bunch of photos of them again. I really enjoy photographing them so I can keep tabs on how they're growing... plus they're super pretty, duh! Everything grows so slowly that I may think nothing is happening at all but a photo from a month ago will prove me wrong.
In mid-October it started to get chilly outside so I dragged everything in off my porch. The first few days of alllll the plants being in my office it felt a little bit crowded, especially considering the fact my two largest plants doubled in size over the summer. They've been inside for enough time now that the cluttered look of everything squished onto a few tables in front my windows is starting to grow on me. I'm liking my little jungle. Earlier in the year I shared photos of my vanity area and mentioned how I felt like a goddess everyday while putting on my make-up surrounded by plants. I still feel the same way. Someday I want to live somewhere with enough natural light that I can permanently have plants both indoors and out. I enjoy being surrounded by them. Really, I just need my own greenhouse.
Look at that Christmas cactus blooming!!!
The only really good thing about having all my plants squished inside, other than the fact I get to see them while I work, is that it makes me realize how many I have and that is keeping me away from all my favorite garden centers. I'm not sure how long that will actually last. I'm sure I'll end up convincing myself that one more won't hurt anything. Hah!
