Lots Of Green Changes Going On



I found that some of the leaves of my house plants were getting too hot so close to the two windows I had them in. 


So I moved the table and chairs where I eat underneath the window in the living space. And moved most of the plants here.



This is more indirect light. But very bright light. The succulents here are closer to the patio door.



As most of you know, when one thing gets moved, so does something else. And on and on.




A place to sit next to the patio door to have a cup of coffee amid my "jungle." Think how much air is being purified in that space!



I don't know about you, but this cold time of year, when you can't stay outside much, green plants inside just make me happy.



That and a nice hot cup of coffee with a bit of sugar and creamer, and I'm a happy lady. Looking about me at the myriad of colors that now inhabit my small home.

Happy house planting!

  4. Now I know what I am going to give to myself for Valentine's Day --
    an indoor plant. Hate to admit it, but right now I have only one
    indoor plant. Thanks for these lovely photos of your plants and of
    all of the new colors in your cozy home.

    1. The plants in front of the front window and patio door were looking a bit sad. Maybe it was too cold.

  7. I think this change looks great! I sometimes find my plants get too much light right in front of the window so I need to make some changes also. Love that you can eat in front of the window...nice! All the colors you have chosen for you boho look just make me smile!

  8. Happy Happy Happy home! I love all your plants and have incorporated a few into my small space. They are thriving. I have four just in the bathroom! I have a blue bird cage hanging with a plant inside. How often do you see a bird cage hanging over a toilet? I may have to go out this weekend and get a couple of more plants. I love your purple bench! So vibrant. Happy Valentine's Day.

    1. Oh, many plants love the humidity of a bathroom. If I had a window in there, I'd have them there too. I think it's fine to have a bird cage over a toilet. It's "the unexpected."

  15. HI Brenda! Oh, I'm enjoying your colors and your live plants! I didn't have many plants that I kept indoors in Texas but now that we've moved, I do want a few. I need to go buy some nice little ivys. I do well with those.

    1. I tend to have less luck with ivies. I don't know if they need more humidity or what. I'll have to look that up in my house plant book.

  18. I love how the plants look with that colorful quilt as a back drop. Brenda your plants are beautiful, would you think about doing a post on the care of houseplants. I could use some tips.

  19. I love the freshness and color that plants bring to a room, but I am the world's worst at trying to keep them alive and healthy! I swear I have a black thumb. If I do manage to get one to somewhat grow, the kitties develop a Peter Rabbit syndrome and start nibbling...
    I'll just have to enjoy pictures of yours. :-)

    1. The world's worst problem is over watering. And I tend to do that sometimes.

  23. I like the changes that you made, and it seems like a great idea to move the chair by the patio doors. Your greens everywhere looks so nice. It's hard keeping plants alive in IL since during winter we have so few sunny days. I so understand about moving things. When I move one thing in turns in to just about every room incurring changes. But it's OK, keep things interesting! I love your homes colorfulness...since I so enjoy color!

  24. I still love house plants. I could go back to the 70s, I think it was, when we had them everywhere. Yes. They are beautiful to look at. Calming and cleaning and often contained in beautiful pots. I really love your new blankets so colorful and enlivening.

  28. Your entire space makes me happy, not just the plants...though you certainly have a green thumb indoors and out.

    Brenda this move / this space...has worked for you. Look what you've done with it TWO TIMES thus far :) Brings to mind the old phrase that goes something like 'bloom where you are planted' though I am not sure if that is the exact phrase.

    I just feel that you moved to a place with good soil for you / might sound silly to some but I think that you'll understand :)

  29. "I get by with a little help from my friends". So many of us 'ole hippie chicks are loving the sixties/seventies flavored "boho" decor. I liked your old home, I LOVE THIS ONE!

  37. All of the furniture and colors look great. I dont know how you decided on the colors except for the quilt. It would take me forever. It brightens up things. I like your table by the window too, gives you a place to see what is out front during the day and like the chair at the back to enjoy the patio.

    1. Well, I start out with something like a quilt. Then I choose colors from it. Then I choose various shades from those colors that are somewhat different to mix it up some. Don't want to match too much.

  46. I am so jealous of your green thumb Brenda! I am dying to have loads of plants around the house to really get that boho vibe down ;) I had two leafy ones but they both eventually kicked the bucket. Now I just have succulents and a cactus. Guess I will have to stick to those! Pinned this for inspiration though ;)
