the importance of greenery

It just makes everything more beautiful...

I'm not the best at caring for plants, and we don't have many spots in the house with good light & safety from the cats, but I'm itching for more green in the house. I'm looking for a big plant for our bare living room. Maybe a lemon tree.

for my apartment the number issue is the cat, I swear every time I look at our palm plant the cat is just chewing on it, they just loooove to destroy things.

i'm not so good at caring for plants either. a lemon tree sounds awesome! have you ever tried a succulent? they're not really big, but they are generally suppose to be easier to take care of.

Alli, until I moved into our house almost 4 years ago with its garden full of trees and shrubbery I never appreciated how beautiful it looked, I grew up in a Victorian Terrace with a courtyard rather than a garden. Everyday I just feel happy just by looking out into my garden.

I do not have green fingers myself, but i definitely adore and love the greenery very very much. I fell in love with that second photo. I would love waking up to such dreamy greenery every morning.

I want to lie in that bed all day, drinking tea, reading books, and looking out the lovely window...

I agree Alli - greenery seems to complete a home somehow. I have that second image in my inspiration folder too - it looks like the comfiest bed ever to curl up with a nice cuppa x
