UJB|Plants and Flowers

by Barbara-

This month’s UJB theme is Plants and Flowers. This challenge came at the right time because I must confess, I almost never have a bouquet of flowers unless there is a special occasion. Luckily, I got some flowers from my wonderful husband for my birthday 2 weeks ago and surprisingly they are still alive. I snipped a few to decorate my plant wall.


I made these light bulb planters a while back and I use them to root cuttings. I always have a few cuttings from overgrown plants which I pot up later once they have enough roots. I’ve rooted English Ivies  and spider plants in the past.

When I have flowers in the home, I put a few of them in the remaining bulbs to brighten up my plant wall.

This wall is still in progress and I would love suggestions on what else to add. I’m thinking more Staghorns and mounted earthstars. No?

Why don’t you head on over to the Urban Jungle Bloggers website for more plants and flowers?! Until the next green obsession, have a great weekend!

    hi Barbara
    I think they are chrysanthemums flowers. Love your repurposing of the light bulbs.

      Thanks Lisa! I guess once I get into outdoor gardening I can identify most flowers. Can’t wait for your coaching next spring
