This month’s Urban Jungle Bloggers theme is plants and art and I have decided to keep it as simple as possible and let my beautiful new plant shine. I actually took these pics at my mum’s house last month when I was staying there as I was desperate to take advantage of the one of the beautiful fireplaces in her Georgian townhouse. She normally has a million and one postcards lined up along the mantelpiece so I selected a couple of those as my ‘art’ element. Other than that my new Donkey’s tail (also known as a Burro’s tail or Sedum morganianum) was left to take centre stage.
I can not tell you how inspired I have been by the Urban Jungle Bloggers project, set up by Igor and Judith. If you had asked me about five years ago what I thought of house plants, I would have said I didn’t like them or the amount of space they take up. I considered them clutter. Through this project I have learnt to see house plants in a completely new light; using and displaying them around my house in ways I would never have thought of without the inspiration of the UJB community. This week I even wrote an article about how to bring the outdoors in for the Shurgard blog – pop over and take a look.
