Hope everybody had a great weekend! This weekend for me was spent doing lots of work and tending to yet another cold in our house. M+L lounged around and watched some movies (the only time they will sit still for a movie is when they are sick). In between working and snuggles I found a fantastic pin board by BastisRIKE which has completely inspired me to get some house plants. It's something I have been thinking about for awhile especially knowing tending to my garden is coming to and end. M+L really love helping with watering plants and watching them grow. I think it's such a great project for kids to take on. It's also a good thing for me as a mom to take the time with such a peaceful activity and to let them learn by their own actions of helping. I haven't had a single traditional house plant since my last one died which was one I got from my grandmother after she passed away. I really wanted to keep it alive, but I didn't. After that I decided maybe I am just completely inept at house plant care and thus shouldn't torture another one. Though I did recently do a succulent terrarium which is still doing really great and I think I am ready to add a little more plant life to my house. It's also a great way to purify the air and after the second cold in three weeks, I am thinking it might not be a bad idea.
Do you have any suggestions on plants that might also be easy to care for or any great links on house plant care? Do you have any favorites?
