Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you all have a smooth transition into weekend mode. This Friday, I want to celebrate our plant babies!

I have found many times that surrounding myself with greenery and tending to the needs of plants often helps to boost my mood and alleviate stress.

It’s a great way to get out of my head and do something tactile, especially after those downright overwhelming weeks.

So today, I want to see your plants!

Please share a photo or two of your plant pals, as well as what they’re called and/or why you like them. 

Here’s a photo of our “Bird of Paradise” plant. I love the deep green of the foliage, and it brightens my mood every time I look over at it in the corner of the living room.

I live in an apartment, so while all my plants are indoor houseplants, feel free to share photos of your garden if you have one.

If you don’t have houseplants or a garden, share a photo or a description of your favorite space in nature to de-stress.

Wishing you a restful weekend.

Many people are lovers of Coffee drink, but most of them never saw a Coffee flower. As I was brought up amidst the coffee plantation, I would love to share how coffee flower looks and how it turn out to be a seed

Red seed is ripe one and it is dried to remove the moisture in it. Later the dried seed is converted to powder.

This is one of the many roses growing on our 6 rose bushes in our garden. These were planted in memory of our little angel Laura who sadly passed away 10 years ago (you can read more about her here) These roses remind me every day that life can hit you hard when you least expect it, but that it can also be beautiful and tender. It's a daily reminder to be grateful and to enjoy life to it's fullest. 

Here is a picture of our garden that I just took minutes ago, it's a wonderful place for the kids to play and for us to relax, and sometimes work in the shadow of the tree:

Plant babies, does Baby Groot count as a Plant Baby?  I'm no green thumb, so this is about as close as I get, other than the fake plastic plants that I can barely keep alive.

Hi @Zim _Andrew Zimmerman_ __Appfire__! I agree with @Dan Breyen as I also cannot keep plants alive, with one exception. I bought this snake plant at IKEA along with some succulents. All the succulents died, but the snake plant is still living. And just for some fun, does my dancing Groot Funko Pop count as a plant baby?

Happy Friday!  I used to have such a black thumb it became a running joke in my family. I’ve gotten a lot better. And I have proof!  😆. Here are some of my favorites.IMG_3618.jpeg71062093158__266A8CD9-7DD3-4200-BAD8-721A85A73E4A.jpeg67670011313__D9130D9F-C2EE-4B27-AB84-78AAE36B707A.jpegIMG_3619.jpeg

Love this post!

Covid made me buy all the plants...and most of them are still alive. ;) 

Here's a few of my favorites that are visible from my desk area. We did these cute little succulents for my sister's wedding shower:

It's probably more of a reverse air purifier when my kids empty it. 😂

A little late to comment, but I love having plants around me both inside the house and out in my garden. 

Here's one of my indoor plants when blooming
