I have to say I loved all your comments so much. So many great stories of sentimental houseplants!
And now, onto a bit of fun. Last week I told you about what I envision The Garden Appreciation Society to be about. Check out that post for the full details, but here’s the gist of it: Too many of us are “tight” with the beauty that our gardens produce. We only allow ourselves to enjoy it in situ. The goal of The Garden Appreciation Society is to allow ourselves to enjoy the fruits of our gardening labor in more places.
I won’t make you take a pledge, wear a funny hat (unless that’s your thing) or take hours away from your
weeding gardening time. All you have to do is snip a few flowers or a few leaves, or SOMETHING from your yard and bring it inside to enjoy in a different way. Snap a picture of it, post it on your blog, a photo site (i.e. Flickr, etc.) or even Facebook (make sure you have that photo’s settings on public so we can see) and then link it up.
It’s not about floral design or photography. It’s about enjoying our gardens in a new way.
Here’s my first contribution. A few random daffodils (I bet there are five different varieties in there), some wonderfully unfurled ferns (I think they are prettiest in this state) and a few stems from the not-yet-blooming Virginia bluebells to fill it out.
Now it’s your turn! Link up here (make sure you link direction to the URL of the photo or specific blog post, not a general blog/photo site URL):
