House without plants.
My mum always had lots of plants on the windowsills. She would always tell my dad off for “lying in her flowers” when he was sitting at the kitchen table by the window, leaning slightly towards the plants. Now, every winter time, I spread lots of tender plants and seedling trays on our windowsills, until I can take them outside after the danger of frost has passed. For years these were the only plants that we had in the house. Recently though, we have decided to open one of our rooms as a B&B and as we were decorating it, we both agreed that it would benefit from some greenery in the form of house plants. This has improved the space no end! A couple of pots, a Chlorophytum comosum ‘Ocean’ and Adiantum fragrans, bring so much life into that room, that when we don’t have guests, I just love going in and sitting it that it. I also have some young Crassulas, lots of cyclamen and some spider plants in my office room. I wonder if people still grow a lot indoors? Again, a memory of my aunt’s house, when I was a child, is one of more plants then furniture and mum and aunty Mary always swapping cuttings and talking about plants. I wasn’t really that interested then but it’s a very different story now.
