Hello my Lovelies 🙂
Well, it’s not Sunday. Yes, I skipped actually two Sundays, that’s happened because I sat down and tried to write but I didn’t find my flow. It was dreadful. Yesterday I organized my studio because I got a sofa and needed to rearrange my furniture. It‘s not put in the way I would like to have it but it’s comfy and the studio went in the right direction with it. 🙂
Maybe I didn’t find my flow because of my diagnosis which I got from my appointment with my ENT specialist. Well, I am going to be hard of hearing. As I said, I had an appointment at the ENT because I have some Tinnitus problems and they did some tests, and the results were pretty clear. My family background is full of people who have problems with their hearing and most of them have a hearing aid. For example my father and my granny – his mother – have had these hearing problems their whole life. It is a different situation for me to live with people who have these problems and now the situation has changed in a way that I am going to be one of them. My father was quite shocked while my mother encouraged me to go to my appointments regularly and to get a hearing aid when it will be necessary. I will give you an update on that if you want to.
Anyway; some days ago one of Kickstarter‘s projects which we supported arrived. We supported a project called LeGrow. It is a garden for your home, like in your living room. LeGrow offers a garden system which can be built up in the way you would like to have/create it. It is a modular system, so you can put and stack it the way you want it. The company has different sizes of gardens for your home. We supported the company with 184 Dollars and it was a herb garden in size large.
It was quite a huge package 🙂 I was really excited and couldn’t wait to put plants into it. You can arrange the plants any way you would like to have it. You also get an easy to understand guide on how to plant/pot everything. You don’t need to read a lot because they use pictograms. So there are differences in potting a plants in general to potting succulents or orchids.
Because I was a little bit impatient my husband took me to Pflanzen Richter on Saturday. Well, Pflanzen Richter is a local garden center, where you can buy plants for inside and outside. The variety is huge from a little succulent up to trees. The prices are really fair, the products are of very good quality which is why I like shopping there. The staff is friendly and they help you when you look for something or you can consult them if you need advice on the plants you want to buy. As usual I bought too many plants. 😀 That is so me but I can’t resist. I’m not quite sure how it happened but I bought the following plants:
Most of these plants were really tiny 😀
We put the pots together and also stacked some of them, so we created some heights. We changed it a few times until we created the garden we would like to have. That is the coolest part about LeGrow: You can put and stack it the way you want. It is really easy to handle. I think that it would be fun for kids as well.
So I started potting on Saturday afternoon. I love a good planting party. 🙂 I enjoy every moment of that. It is so relaxing and I love the feeling of fresh soil and new plants. Every plant is different with different requirements in regard for water, soils, and light. It makes me happy to see a plant grow.
After 1 1/2 hours every plant had his pot and we put it back together. During that time we listened to something like planting music. We were amazed how different it looked. So we connected the electrical parts and filled the glass bulb with water. After that we put the power on and the humidifier started working. It was awesome to see how the steam wandered through the plants. The plant lights were really bright and they give great light.
I sat there and watched the waves of the steam for at least 30 minutes. It was so relaxing.
Because of the moss the room got some smell of forest which is really lovely.
We thought for quite a long time about the perfect place because the garden isn’t a small one and we do already have a lot of plants in the house. At first we thought of the living room but there would be just a place on the table. We decided against it because the table would be full with the garden. Our next idea was the working office, nevertheless we have the space but we wouldn’t see the garden because it would be on top of a bookshelf. So our third idea was the bedroom. Behind our bed we have a storage area on which only our bedside lights stand, so there is enough space for the garden. We brought everything into the bedroom and placed the garden. It looked amazing. 🙂
Before we went to bed we decided to switch on the lights and the humidifier of the garden. We lied down and enjoyed the smell of the moss as well as the quiet sound of the humidifier. The smell of forest with this little cool refreshing breeze let you relax your body and mind. Even at night, after we switched off the light and the humidifier, I could smell the moss.
Since Saturday we have enjoyed the garden nearly every evening or night. At the moment I don’t regret that we supported LeGrow with that amount of money. The only thing I can say is that we love our little garden which brings fun, creativity, and relaxation. If you like/love plants and your space it is limited you should have a look at LeGrow. Maybe it would be a great garden for you as well.
Love to you all,
