My newest obsession.

air_plant_love.jpg

As I've confessed in earlier posts, I have an unusual love for flowers (plants included.) That being said, I don't particularly have a green thumb. I may or may not be known as a bit of a plant killer. I think 2013 may be the first year that I've begun to get the hang of growing things rather than killing them. I have a thriving herb garden complete with mint, dill, cilantro, parsley, basil. As well as poppies, wild flowers and peonies. 

I'm all about bringing the outside in. That brings me to my newest obsession. Air plants. Also known as Tillandsia. They're plants that grow without soil while often times attaching themselves onto other plants. There are over 540 different species of which I have 8. My favourite we've named Nathan (pictured top right, middle left and bottom center.) He's 15 years old. Not all air plants live this long Nathan is just a special kind. I've had him for 4 months and he's still alive!! This is a good sign. 

Most of my air plants I got from one of my favourite flower shops, Olla. It's an inspiring space to visit. So if you're in the area, I highly recommend you check it out!
