We are now settled into our home, and was able to put the few planters we brought to good use.
How could I leave these two relitives of the Jade Plant behind? Don't worry, they weren't that big when I stuck them in a shoe box to bring with... they've had about six months to grow.
the urns have it
Two mother's day presents, one from Tortellino and one from myself. I like the way the two shapes contrast, yet they relate.
I just put all these guys together, they should grow into an impressive display this summer.
cut it out
More cuttings that are slowly and carefully growing.
the columns have it
In our living room, two columns really make a statement and elevate the plants to art.
I went to visit the Graz botanical gardens, today and came a way with a little collection. To be fair, I did ask if they had any plants for sale, but they do not. Actually, they looked at me like I was nuts or like I thought I was in a plant store, instead of a botanical garden. Anyway, I picked up a few stems and leaves that "fell off" as I brushed past them. The loot includes: Camellia Sinesis (green tea plant), Fire Stick (from a 20 foot tree!!), Button, climbing fern, Begonia and some really bizarre multi-segmented tree leaf (don't know if that's going to grow into anything).
