The Joy of Plants

House plants and flowers are a great way to bring splashes of colour into your home and soften a room’s harsh edges.

We have quite a few large plants dotted around our home, but as Ivy becomes more mobile we’re beginning to baby-proof and that means taking everything up a level. Our large potted trees are being removed and I’m trying to find some suitable houseplants which are small enough to be on a shelf but can still make a big difference to our rooms. 

I love the colour, beauty and fragrance that flowers bring to a room but cut flowers can be a bit expensive if bought regularly so I was really excited when the FlowerCouncil of Holland offered to send me a beautiful orchid for our newly baby-proofed home!

The flowers are absolutely gorgeous and I’ve already had several comments on what a beautiful plant it is – it has quickly become the centre of interest in the room.

However, my favourite thing about it is its amazing fragrance. I have a real thing about my house smelling nice, and these flowers give out a wonderful sweet sherberty aroma – much better than artificial air fresheners!

According to the Flower Council of Holland not only do flowers and plants look beautiful, they can also help boost your mood, offer health benefits and provide comfort and I can well believe it. There is something special about bringing the natural world into your home!

  1. I love color and gardening as well ...

    I would love to see other moms splashed as well. We could use your ideas. Your tips. Your stories. Your photos. Your anything mom.

    I compose some notes on Monday. I get the momma schedules. So hop over any day of the week (think link up whenever it works best for you) and join us. Real moms. Sharing our notes. Creating a momma melody.
