Plant mania

Plants via that nordic feeling

I’ve gone green. Maybe summer and sunshine has gone to my head, but I’ve been craving plants – and lots of them – lately. So I went plant shopping this weekend and came home with a bunch of new ones, mostly succulents. I also bought a new Corokia tree (it’s the big one that looks like it’s straight out of Lord of the Rings). This is the third one I get (3 is the charm, right?). I hope I can keep this one alive. It’s the only plant I’ve ever managed to kill apart from a few herbs here and there. I am usually known for my green thumb, so I have to give it another try. If this one doesn’t make it, I’ll give up.

As I told you yesterday, I’ve been moving the furniture around (again). I want to create a new picture wall too, and while this is going on, the frames are taking up some of the room, where I want to put the plants. So they are a bit squeezed together. But I decided to arrange them anyway yesterday as I was cleaning up and getting everything into its right place after the rearrangement. I love all this green!

Btw, someone asked to see, what the living room looked like before I moved the furniture back. Check this and this post.

      Hehe, I am actually quite good with plants (usually). But not the Corokia – I am hoping third time is the charm :))

    Jeg er også gået plante-amok! Hehe. De har mange flotte planter i IKEA til ingen penge. Og nogle søde potter til, hvis du en dag får lyst til lidt mere kulør? Jeg har malet flotte guldtrekanter på mine – se her http://www.bloglovin.com/frame?post=3244246549&group=0&frame_type=b&blog=12631269&frame=1&click=0&user=0 :-)

      Nogle af dem har jeg haft i årevis, andre har jeg købt på en gård i Rørvig. Det er ganske almindelige lerpotter :)
