Was SO EXCITED to stop by @littleplantshopyeg the other day! They have so many exotic and harder to find plants! 😍 I'm going abroad for a month soon so I wasn't able to buy anything, but you can bet that I will return to get the pilea I was eyeing!! 🌱
This rainy Saturday has got me spending time with my planties in my studio. It’s been so nice to slowly do whatever I want and occasionally do nothing at all. I forget to do that. Thanks Mother Nature for being like “hey, take it easy today.” Oh, does anyone know who this guy is?
One of my hens and chicks in my hens and chicks garden is flowering. Sempervivums are monocarpic, meaning they only flower once and then they die. Its tragically beautiful, the "hen" makes sure they give off tons of "chicks" before they flower, so they can focus on producing a complex flower structure as one last hoorah before their death! 🌸💮

I'm almost a bit proud it made it so far as they often die quickly after they are brought from shop in December. It took almost no effort - only regular daily spraying for sustaining efficient air moisture and a bit of fertilizing since spring. However, it's unlikely to make it flower in December but I don't care. It's beautiful as it is.
We can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel for our garden!! Just need to do our mini patio for our firepit and grill and then paint the garage, but we're doing the painting in the fall. P.S. the big patch of dirt in front of the garage will hopefully be grass soon!
there aren’t many cafes that serve espresso w/sparkling water so then I usually opt for either a macchiato or a cortado. Typically, I’ll go for a cortado. The milk balances the espresso and it’s not as acidic. I especially like that Anodyne serves their cortados with a biscotti on the side. | #caffeinated
We are lucky enough to have this photo on the cover of @mantramagazine (our sister pub) this month by @issys_happiness, one of the absolute best undiscovered accounts. Travel, plant-based food, plant love goodness 🌵🌵
Cycads have already been existing for approximately 300 million years. They have appeared before there were dinosaurs, existing alongside them, and perhaps being eaten by them. Unlike the dinosaurs, the cycads are still with us, although they are not now as abundant or diverse as in their Mesozoic hey-day. ☁️☁️☁️ Cycads vary in size from having trunks only a few centimeters to several meters tall. They typically grow very slowly and live very long, with some specimens known to be as much as 1,000 years old. The specimen on the photo is a Cycas revoluta in Palmenhaus Schönbrunn. Some of the cycads were brought to the Schönbrunn greenhouse in 1875 and have survived the air raids in 1945, when part of the garden has been destroyed. .
