This month's Urban Jungle Bloggers topic fits my current state of mind pretty well: back to school, plants on the workplace. It's been one busy month, but a very productive one too, here in my home office. Strangely enough I don't have many plants on my desk. Most of them don't like the northern light in our yellow living room plus our cats love nibbling on fresh green leaves a lot. Especially palm tree leaves. I wish I could leave my home-grown palm tree behind my screen, I love the way it looks:
Palm trees create the best tropical shadows that immediately remind me of sunshine and the Mediterranean: that's why I love them so much. Did you know that growing your own palm tree is pretty cool (I think!) and only requires lots of patience? Mine is about 4-5 years old, but grows happily all by itself. If you like to learn how it works: I made a little infographic with instructions a while ago, you can find it here.
On my little side desk I created a small composition with succulents and cacti from around the house.
See that tall cactus plant on the left? Since June he grew so much, I wonder when he'll fall down, but sofar he stays perfectly green and balanced.
And here's one of the things that's kept me busy: our brand new Urban Jungle Bloggers website! We are launching it today, so take a look! We hope you'll like it 🙂
