it's not easy being green

Once we started to see more sunshine and 70 degree temps, back in February, I decided I was ready for spring. I took down any decor that was deemed to wintery and made a $12 trip to Home Depot to pick up some house plants. I mixed in the new plants with some faux friends from last year. Unfortunately, I'm usually a bad plant owner and have trouble keeping my plants alive. But I'm really trying this time! It's been 3 weeks and no one's croaked yet- progress! I love the look of greenery in the home and even Mr. Nicholas had to admit that everything feels much more springy with all our plants. 

 Ready for spring? I think yes. 


  1. Love all the little greenery you have. I totally understand about the bad plant owner part. I have 3 plants that have survived an entire year, although one is on the brink of wilting :(

    I need to get on the bandwagon and get some more 'spring' into my house. It is bad that I live in Florida and just took down 'winter' decor stuff... yesterday? :-/

    Happy Friday!

    i suck at planting and keeping plants alive, too, but i am really wanting a floor plant.  what's that one you have there, in the last photo?  and then i have to check if it's toxic to cats.  hopefully, it's not.

    No worries! I'm still finding Christmas decor around our home, which I put away moths ago!
