February is the month of the year when I start waking up of hibernation. Whenever there is more natural light, I have noticed over the years that it works on me like magic: I get so active and energetic that I’m like a new person.

This is the time of the year when we can see new life also in green plants after the long, dark winter. Like us humans, also plants need light to grow bigger and stronger. It’s quite easy to notice when you have surrounded yourself with them and that’s exactly what we have done: we have a lot of green plants around us at home. A lot. The accurate amount is 29 and I have a feeling that there is still more to come…

Personally, I like indoor plants so much because I can create a space that has a lot of life and good energy in it even when it’s grey and cold outside. In my opinion, plants make every home look very cozy. Exotic plants also remind me of different places in the world. And they clear the air, not the least!

I really enjoy working with plants indoors and in summertime outdoors and find it a very relaxing hobby. Luckily my boyfriend has also a big green thumb so we share the passion for this together. We did a lot of replanting last weekend because many of the plants looked tired and some of them also needed bigger pots.

I hope these pictures can share the spring vibe to all of you that most of us are so eagerly waiting for. Spring is coming, it’s ahead!

Helmikuu on uuden elämän aikaa sekä itselleni että meidän lukuisille viherkasveille, kiitos lisääntyneen luonnonvalon. Toivottavasti tämä vehreys saa kaikille kevään mieleen, vaikka ulkona näkyisikin vielä lunta. Kyllä se kevät sieltä on tuloillaan, hetkenä minä hyvänsä!

  1. Wow, I love your plant collection and am SO jealous! Our windows have a sun-coating (Korea-style) and my potted plants hated it so much that I can only keep them on the kitchen sill. I miss them around my desk so much! Winter is still in full swing here, but hopefully I can get some hardy potted plants soon.

  2. I would love to have that many plants around my home; however, there isn't much sunlight for them to grow. I'm in Summer, but the sun isn't facing the right direction.

  5. I love plants! They make the space look so much more fresh and open. I'd start with ones easier to look after though �� I'm not that great with them!

  8. Oh yes, I can see what you mean by rascal. Our cat used to knock down some of the pots if they were in his way… I can't wait to read your plant post. Maybe you include the little rascal in it? 😀
