Summer. Sun. Colors. Plants. Our June edition of Urban Jungle Bloggers is all about the vibrancy and fun of summers! So let’s make your plants pop with color – it’s #plantcolorpop time! This time we wanted to see one plant in front of color to make it pop – in contrast to last month’s über-successful #plantgang edition. Now since I have a few plants that I really like, I could not stick to only one but I chose a few of my houseplants.
My latest plant addition is the quirky cactus that I bought at Les Succulents Cactus in Paris – it is a ‘Hildewintera aureispina’ cactus and I love its sculptural looks so he had to take center stage in front of a yellow backdrop. Next is my flittering beauty ‘Oxalis triangularis’, also a Parisian herself. I love her so much – it shows, right? She had the honor to be placed in a new plant pot that I found in one of my favorite interiors boutiques in Paris, at Curiosity.
Next on the #plantcolorpop catwalk is my cactus cutting that I brought back from Sicily. Look how much it grew! I am smitten with it. Plus he looks pretty fancy in front of the blue-yellow backdrop, don’t you agree? The same backdrop seemed perfect for my scraggy little palm tree and the jungle queen ‘Monstera deliciosa’ remained in front of my grey wall – not the most vibrant backdrop but still color, right?
Enough with my plants and colors, I am off to see all of your #plantcolorpop posts now. See you over at Urban Jungle Bloggers!
