Fern


To link in with Lou's Nature in the Home theme (this week: Your Favourite Plant). So: ferns...


I don't have houseplants as such, apart from a pot-bound palm on the bathroom windowsill. I'm partial to an orchid or two. But the plants I really like don't seem to like me.

I love those miniature cyclamen but they never last. 

It's the same with ferns. They have a sort of bohemian appeal, but they perish too. So I took a frond from the garden and pressed it. I have an old Habitat flower press lurking up in the loft somewhere, but in this case I just piled a load of books on top and left it for a few days.


Then pinned it on my old mood board (must start using that again) alongside a picture of Louise Brooks. And I gave her a little hair decoration. Not that she needs it. I would love to be able carry off a hairstyle like that.

    1. And they look so interesting when they're starting to uncurl too. They remind me of old botanical drawings :)
