a green planting fling

Check out the latest additions to my dining room!

I've wanted plants for ages. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I've lived with these gorgeous little pots I picked up in the Garage Sale Trail since the day I moved into my apartment - over 6 months ago. Eek! I paid $2 for all of them, and they've just been sitting pretty this whole time, waiting for me to get my act together.

Finally last weekend, when the cold finally worked its way into my apartment enough to warrant the purchase of a heater, I took a slight detour while at Bunnings and picked up some delightful little succulents as well.

Once I got them home the planting process took well under 15 minutes.

I absolutely love the colour they bring to my dining table and appreciate the healthy air they provide me (did you know that just a few plants can reduce indoor air pollution, improve creativity and productivity, and reduce stress?). How did I possibly lived without them for this long!

If you have any tips on great indoor plants I'd love to hear them, I'm in the market for a couple of small trees to add a little bit more green to my home.

Oh, and for those who are wondering, I am not an oil pulling convert yet (I am managing to do it about 50% of the time) but I haven't given up. I even got my gorgeous hubby to give it a try, and in his words, "It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be." Well said my Darling.
