A few weeks ago I talked about swopping some plant babies and I must confess I didn't have any up my sleeve but I knew I had some growing... This month @igorjosif and @joelix the team behind #urbanjunglebloggers are asking plant lovers to celebrate the new circle of life which spring embodies...
And who doesn't like a good plant baby?
I'd heard that the Chinese Money Plant, the Pilea Peperomioides is an easy plant to propogate so I thought I'd give it a try. I detached a few babies from the main plant and put them in water for them to shoot roots (you can also add rooting powder to encourage extra growth but I didn't need too).
February saw the whisperings of spring with snowdrops and crocus; whilst March has treated us to warmer weather, lighter evenings, even more birdsong and some majestic displays of blossom and magnolia.
And every month it is lovely to browse the #wipsandblooms gallery to see how makers and artists incorporate their seasonal blooms and plants into their work-in-progress shots. This is no mean feat - and I'm always happy that people are happy to share their work before it is finished. It takes bravery to say - I've made this and its not quite perfect yet, but for me, I really love seeing these more behind the scenes style shots, which allow you to get to know the maker better as they share their creative journey.
