There is something about the spring and summer that makes me want to have live plants or flowers in the house at all times. I've been cutting flowers from my backyard weekly and I've added some ivy and ferns inside as well. I love decorating with the ivy and ferns because they are pretty and easy to keep alive with not that much water and indirect sunlight. You can actually get away with no sunlight if you put it under a lamp. :)
I love pink roses!
Another reason I love ivy is because it is so in-expensive! You can get some at Walmart for less than three dollars. I've since moved the above ivy to our bedroom and replaced it with two ferns. I dropped the ferns in a basket I got at Goodwill for a dollar.
This little fern behind our sink has really grown too. It was just a little sprout when I bought it. Some times I have to trim it because it gets so long.
Another reason I probably like having live plants is because I love decorating with the color green. :) Plants make a house feel so "homey" I think. Do y'all like using plants inside?
