This last week was the first one that I really struggled with this project. I feel really stagnant on what I photograph, and unfortunately the weather is not good for going out and about to shoot photos. Even editing them on Sunday seemed boring and I had a hard time getting it done.
I hope we’ll get some sunnier days soon and I can get out of this rut.
Sunday February 18 – Green, the color of spring. Also the color of my plants. And the color of most of the stitching I’ve been doing for National Embroidery Month (review of my involvement to come next week). Also, now that the photos have all been edited, it’s the color of almost every photo this week
Monday February 19 – this ceramic wall hanging was bought for me by my mom at the last craft show we’d gone to. She looks over me from the wall next to my living room plants
Tuesday February 20 – I bought these cuttings a while back and put half of them in water (the way I’ve always rooted other plants) and half in soil (the way the seller recommended rooting them). Both sets are still alive, but I can finally see roots in the water so I’m hoping the soil ones have roots starting as well. These took a lot longer than other plants have and I was getting nervous that it wouldn’t happen
Wednesday February 21 – I finally gave in and bought a couple table top essential oil diffusers/humidifiers, my house is so dry that I was having nose bleeds and my plants were feeling it, too. I love them, so far I’ve only done pure water, but I have a few essential oils I’ve used in the past that I think I’ll try soon
Thursday February 22 – a local couple runs plant sales from their apartment and have had these marimo moss terrariums on their instagram on and off for the last month. I gave in and bought one. I love them and have named them after my parents (if you don’t know the story that goes with marimo moss balls read it here)
Bonus – I also picked up an air plant that I’d seen a couple months back, and it was so flippin’ cute. And fragile. And I dropped the bag on the step in my garage. The plant survived, but the cute ceramic pot is smashed. And it was the only one left at the store. #SoSad
Friday February 23 – smallest peperomia I’ve ever seen, it’s adorable, I kind of never want it to grow, just fill out and stay the same height. (I need to pick up some stones for the bottom of the jar before I plant it in there though)
Saturday February 24 – found this cute planter for my palm plant, isn’t she adorable? #TheHigherTheHairTheCloserToGod Also, notice the planter to the right – I went to a different nursery and they had the planter I’d smashed on Thursday #SoHappy
Sunday February 25 – I still love my eggs, but for some reason this morning I was craving soft-boiled eggs. I hate peeling soft boiled eggs but I gave in to the craving anyway
As always, please check out my Instagram for more photos from my week.
