Vines

This post is probably completely out of season. But like I’ve said a thousand times: I do not have a green thumb. So it really doesn’t matter what I say about growing plants, flowers, or even vines.  My mom has two vines in her back yard that are beginning to grow up the back of the house and they look great!  My great aunt gave them to her (she has a major green thumb).  I love the way a house looks with a vine growing up the exterior.  Maybe my mom will send me some pictures of her vines to share on the blog :)

I have a fiddle leaf fig tree!

I got a fiddle leaf fig tree! For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been wanting one for a very long time.  My tree was already about two and a half feet tall when I got it last week so it is just a miniature version of what you see in this picture. I would have taken a picture of MY tree but I am in the process of packing to move to a new apartment right when I get back from the beach so my room is full of boxes and stuff. But I will be sure to post a pic once I get situated – I haven’t even gotten a planter for it yet. I’m so excited! :) Thank you, Mallory and Monteigne!

I hope everyone has a great Thursday.

Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

I feel like I complain a lot about not having a green thumb.  But the truth is that I really don’t try very hard.  Maybe if I tried I could actually keep an orchid alive for more than a few weeks.  Although when it comes to plants, what I really want is a fiddle leaf fig tree!
