So let's talk about plants.
I think they're great.

MR KITLY sells indoor and balcony plants
for greening your life.

All plants pictured here are for sale!
(But not the macrame at this stage,
we are working on it:)

(Knights Star) from the Amaryllidaceae family.
Likes a position with good morning or afternoon light. 
Perfect for balcony plant or on a bright window ledge indoors.
Flowers spring/ summer.  (It can be induced to flower if fed before and after 
a quick visit into the fridge for approx 1 week).
How much is enough?

  1. I love plants too!
    I was so delighted to see your comment on my blog. It's inspired me to continue a series of watercolour house plants. I'll keep an eye out for the gallery space; I think it'd be just perfect. Thank you.
