I've been trying to keep the winter blues away, so when I read this month's Urban Jungle Bloggers theme I knew I wanted to join in. Created by Igor and Judith, Urban Jungle Bloggers is a collaborative monthly series which aims to inspire and create a community of green in the home and beyond.
I'm a bit rubbish when it comes to greens, the leafy foliage doesn't stand a chance once it passes the threshold, until that is, I discovered succulents and cacti. These hardy little plants look beautiful with their pale blue-green hues and architectural shapes and seem to thrive in our flat.
As a huge coffee lover I was excited to combine the two and take time to relax at home. I find that having plants around me quite calming despite the caffeine effect, they also add a special touch to white interiors and look great in ceramic planters.
I own five or six little succulents – which I must find out their names – and a sprawling Aloe Vera which I've been caring for over the last 12 months and I'm always on the look out for beautiful planters. Do you love plants in the home? Do you have green fingers? I'd love to hear any tips on keeping the greens going.
