I love this outdoor studio space which is quite literally both garden and room at once. Blending with its surroundings and increasing the green space, it is the perfect private garden retreat, quilted in a cocoon of ivy and greenery. It reminds me of one of my favorite urban gardens, located in one of my shelves of magazines… I’ll do my best to find it for you!
Air plants truly are a miraculous and mysterious group of plants. Intriguing to look at, their architectural and slightly eerie forms add a touch of green that is reminiscent of the sea and its creatures. Air plants, or Tillandsia, got their name because they don’t require soil to grow. Instead, in nature, they live on other things – plants, rocks, and trees – for their support, and they gather their nutrients and water from the air. Spanish moss, which hangs from the trees in the southeastern United States is a member of this group.
Their habits not only make them unusual and interesting, but make them extremely easy to care for. As they do not need to be planted, they can live on or in virtually anything and need only moderate light and a soak in water once a week.
