Plants help us to balance our environment at home and work. I have plants in every room of my house, it may sound like a lot but I love them. My mother always had plants around our house and looked after them regularly; on Sundays we all had to help in the garden, I was not too happy about it because I was young and got bored after half an hour of doing it, but it helped me to understand how to look after and take care of plants.
I talk to my plants and praise them when they are doing well, even though my son will tells me not to. But this something that it comes naturally and I can't really avoid it.
My favourite plants are succulents and cacti because the are resilient and adaptable. I used to go to Kew Gardens when my son was little and spent a good amount of time in the Cacti enclosure. It reminded me of the warmth of my country and makes me feel at home. Another inspirational garden is Columbia Road Flower Market, this is where I bought my First succulent when I move to London in 2003 .
Now I found other wonderful place to enjoy plants like Borrowed Light Floral Studio in Walthamstow. I go there to buy plants and to enjoy the soft and lifely environment, the fresh smell of plants makes me feel happy and relaxed. The owners are very knowledgeable and kind.
I am now featuring my ceramic pots in their lovely shop. See you there!
