gratuitous plant post

I suppose you could call this a gratuitous plant post, I just wanted to share some photos of my succulents. I am seriously so proud of these lil guys. I’ve never in my life had plants that were this happy, and growing this well. Taking photos of them is something I do often… maybe a

Propagating Succulents 101

I haven’t been propagating succulents all that long but I’ve already learned quiet a bit and seen a great deal of success. Nearly every time I post photos of my babies on Instagram (…which is quite often) someone asks for help or exclaims frustration in their failed attempts to propagate. Propagation is incredibly simple once

my succulents + tips for healthy plants

After realizing how great my plants were doing on my deck I decided to move everything out there for the summer. I’m no expert, everything I know about plants has been from scouring the internet or personal experience, and believe me I have killed my fair share of plants. I think I’m finally getting the

on the deck

One of my favorite things about my apartment is the deck. It’s not massive, by any means. It’s the width of my house and maybe five and a half feet deep but it’s the perfect size for a small table with chairs, and of course, lots of plants. The last time I had a deck

adventures in propagation

For the past few months I’ve been working on propagating some succulents from the leaves of a plant I owned that got a little bit too leggy. (See the previous two posts on them here + here.) When I went on vacation for a week I just closed my blinds so that nothing got too much

Cleveland Botanical Gardens

After a day of exploring, Jesi and I decided we needed some macarons. I knew exactly how to get to Coquette Patisserie from where we were except I’m the worst at city parking. I’m not a skilled parallel parker and I’m basically always confused whether I’m allowed to park somewhere or not. So while looking

getting back into the swing of film

Like I mentioned in this post, I’m trying really hard to get back into the habit of shooting film. Last year I lost track of how many rolls I went through after number 75. This year I’ve shot around four and half…whoops! It’s far too easy to just tuck my film cameras away and shoot

Rockefeller Park Greenhouse

While Elycia, Ivan, and Milo were out I wanted to show them all my favorite things about Cleveland. Nearly all of those things involve bikes, or food. Bikes were out of the questions with Milo and by Wednesday we didn’t want to eat anymore so I was kind of stumped about what to do. Jeff

Propagating – an update!

It was around this time last month I posted about the succulents I was propagating. See here. I’ve been thinking about posting an update but kept putting it off because I didn’t think they had grown too much. I just took a peek back at that first post and I think it’s kind of hilarious

Propagating for the very first time…

I think it’s pretty obvious I have a thing for plants, my instagram is full of them and I’m sneaking them into my 365 posts. When I was younger my mom would try in vain to get me to garden with her. She’d always quip “someday you’ll love flowers!” Lo and behold she was right.
