June is always the hottest month in
That is why, if you are able, one must surround your home with as much
as possible. Here, in the desert, much of what we see during summer months is brown...brown....brown.
So that is why Brad and I chose this little spot in order that we would feel as though we LIVED in a greenhouse.
These photos are from both inside and outside our home. Every room has something live growing....
When you walk into our home you are looking directly into our backyard via huge glass windows.
I know....one might feel as though you were in a jungle...but it makes everything feel so very cool and refreshing.
These plants are in my kitchen on an elevated bar area...I have a huge skylight...so they get that much needed light. Moisture from the faucet does not hurt as well.
By our front door....requires little light.
Good old pothos in the bathroom. Hopefully it will trail all around the ceiling.
You really DO NOT have to have a green thumb to do this in your home. Just have some decent light....somewhere....and pay attention.
Plants do quite well if left alone to do there thing...but you do have to be consistent in their care.
Hopefully you enjoyed my little tour of our greenhouse today.....we LOVE living here.
