The plant whisperer

 

I am the self proclaimed croissant whisperer so naturally my first thought while on our walk this morning was to go to Yellow Dog Bakery down the block from us.  My husband however has actual talent and so his idea then was to continue our walk and visit the Logan Trading Co. to buy some house plants.  

I think I am more excited on his days off than him. ha!

Walking around in the nursery’s green house was like swimming in a tank of pure Oxygen. I was instantly reminded of the Garfield Conservatory in Chicago which has a similar feel but on a much larger scale – like being in the fountain of youth!

We had a whole cart full of plants including ferns and lilies which now adore the various corners and nooks in the house.  Simple things in life are so exciting! Hope you are having a great hump-day too! more excited
