Nature in the home


Flowers and leaves from the garden, found amongst the weeds and stray kittens!

sweet william, fuschia, lemon verbena, chocolate mint, nasturtiums and a local native that I cannot remember the name of

Linking to the wonderful Nature in the home series at Littlegreenshed, which completely inspired me to pretty up our home. Thank you Lou.

ps I was introduced to the series by both Allison and Jo.

    2. Aren't they gorgeous? They're one of my favourite things to pick and super easy to grow. They're just nasturtium leaves (the flowers are the orangey reddish ones in the teapot) and they've taken over half the backyard, if you plant them, expect them to run wild. If you are inclined, you can eat them in salads, they are very very peppery.

  3. What a lovely array! I have always preferred garden grown blooms and greenery... and nasturtiums are a favourite! Delightful! Now I must rummage about the still VERY bare (and snow-beaten) garden of ours for something living to bring inside... ivy? xx

    1. I'm loving the delicate purple crocuses that are featuring in your most recent posts. Springtime in Paris looks beautiful.
