I've started researching unique indoor herb garden ideas for my kitchen, and have come to the conclusion there are just too many ideas to choose from... see what I mean? They're just all so DARN CUTE. Ugh. This is gonna be a tougher weekend project than I thought.
At first glance, it looks as though these plants are contained in lovely dark brown vases, however, upon closer examination you'll see that these plants are in fact, floating in their own soil. The exposed roots create such a beautiful effect! Although these plants would never hold up in a home, a vase with that pattern printed on it would be absolutely brilliant, don't you think?! VIA
Such a cool collection from TW Workshop by British designer Tracy Wilkinson! What initially caught my attention from her collection were the ceramic vessels intricately woven with wicker. They have this wonderful rustic and clearly - handmade - look. But really, getting one of these is just another excuse for me to bring pretty plants into my house!! Love them all...
Winston Howes, a 70-year-old farmer, created this touching heart-shaped meadow as a tribute to his late wife - by planting 6,000 oak trees in the middle of his field surrounding his home. The heart points in the direction of her childhood home. Aww. Happy Friday everyone!
Flora Grubb's low-maintenance vertical gardens are still one of my all-time favorite finds on MDP (see last years post HERE.) I still peak back on their site occasionally to see what new things they've been working on. I just came across this display designed by their staff member Daniel Nolan. He used a plant called the Platycerium bifurcatum (staghorn fern) and when they grow they seem to resemble antlers. So when mounted on wooden boards they become really cool outdoor-friendly art pieces! Don't they look lovely displayed in a collection like this?
What a sweet idea from Etsy shop To Hold. Air plants are lovely little free floating succulents that can be placed just about anywhere- making them an awesome party favor idea because they can live in little packages for a few days without wilting away. I love how they've been placed in these button shells... wouldn't they be just lovely on a vanity table or kitchen shelf?
