new little {plants}

in Decor, Denmark, our home

Hello and a Happy Monday to you.  Did you all have a nice weekend?  Hopefully all of you moms got pampered a bit?  I know I did!  My husband surprised me with a trip to a new garden center that opened recently and let me pick out all of my favorite plants for our new back terrace.  Apparently he had been saving up money without telling me, which I think is just about the sweetest thing in the world!  I will have more to share of the back terrace soon, but I thought today I would share a couple of the indoor plants I snuck into the mix.  This plant is sitting in my kitchen window…

I do so hope that your week is off to a great start!  Ours is going to be quite busy and on Friday I am heading to the The Hive, which is a blogger conference in Berlin!

I LOVE maiden hair fern! They are one of my favorites too. I had a huge one in Morocco, and have just recently found one here in South Carolina. It sits proudly in a shady spot of my poolside garden. How fun to have a colorful surprise with a trip to the garden center. I could totally lose myself, and usually do, in all the garden centers here. I run out of money long before my wishlist is exhausted! 🙂 Have fun making your terrace a cheery summer retreat!

Beautiful!!! I agree with you so much about Tessa Kiros — her books are divine!

I’m really enjoying Paula Deen’s, Paula Deen & Friends: Living It Up, Southern Style, cookbook. It really inspires me to let my SOUTHERN loose, or at least try a few new recipes with friends, while adding a “dash” of CHARM!

@janice I didn’t know that is what it is called. Thank you! All of the names were in Danish so I wasn’t sure what they would be in English!

@Beth I am really learning to appreciate southern food even though I was born and raised In The south! Lol! I have even learned to make some killer biscuits and gravy! 🙂

Oh!! Maiden hair fern! My favorite fern (although I love birds nest ferns too)! They are just so beautiful and delicate looking. I have a hard time keeping them alive indoors though – they do love to be moist. What a wonderful mother’s day gift. Hope it was a happy day for you.

Great Mothers Day gift! I would love more plants but trying to keep them alive in the heat here is not an easy feat! When we eventually move back to a place with seasons (haha) I will no doubt go a little crazy! Whilst I love to cook I do not have any favourite cookbooks – I have receipes all over the place though!

Have a great time at the conference and Berlin – can not wait to hear all about it!! Have a great week!

I just found you through Artful Blogging.
I reconized some of the photos in your article and realized – hey, she´s living in my country – how cool is that 😉 so just had to pop in and say hi.

@Jill So, do you think if I keep it by the window and water it every day it will be okay?


Tina May 15, 2012 at 8:31 am

@Rach We have the exact opposite problem here! I’m afraid everything will die from the cold and lack of sun!

@ Tina I’m so glad you left me a comment! Your blog is just lovely and your work just amazing! I hope we can keep in touch!

What a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift! And your plants will last longer than flowers in vase.

I just discovered your blog and look forward to catching up on your adventures!

@My Traveling Troop Hi Kristina! Thanks so much for stopping by Flying House! I’m so glad to meet you and wish you the best in your own adventures and hope to stay in touch!
