Anyone else been up since before dawn? Rude start to a Sunday I say. Nursery is locked up tight and plants all (I hope) now placed safely to cope with what the weather man says is still building...
Fortunately no real damage had occurred when I arrived at the nursery this morning - although branch of my neighbors tree on top of my van when I tried to leave home was a little annoying (esp as it was still dark and I didn’t realize till I started to reverse♀️) Anyway nursery is locked down and staying shut for the moment but if the forecast turns out to be a storm in a teacup I’ll see you all this afternoon. x Lib
UPDATE: staying closed all day, see you tomorrow xox
The inclusion of plants in my life, the desire to nurture and grow something that develops it’s own personality and will alter based on the different environments and situations you put them in is maybe a bit like parenthood...although with much lower stakes #plantparenthood #playwithplants #trialanderrorgardening #learnfromyourplants
I’ve just come back from the most relaxing 10 days camping in the plant van & exploring beautiful and wild Tasmania with my gorgeous wife.
Our spoil ourselves treat was booking a spur of the moment night on Bruny Island, where we had a wood fired cedar hot tub and front row tickets to a thunder storm...(swipe right, soo gooood)
In honor of feeling so spoilt myself I’d like to treat you (and a lucky friend) with $400 of @arizona.living goodies
In the comments below tag a friend you think would love to come spend a $200 voucher in our shop - if chosen you win a $200 voucher too If you’re a lucky duck and have lots of friends enter them each in a separate comment please Entries are unlimited and close on Thurs 29th March.
PEACE LOVE & PLANTS
By all reports it was a hot one yesterday! Libby (me) is still off having Tassie adventures (posting from the Bruny Island Ferry this morning) but the nursery is open as usual with the gorgeous @moved.by.yoga there today to help you pick the perfect greenery See you again on Sunday Surf Coast xox Lib aka @arizonanative
We are all stocked up on Ghanian hats and fans PLUS lots of new @jonesandco_ pots - I am super in love with these as they’re unique and stylish as well as affordable - for when you’re getting to that jungle stage in the house and it’s the ‘should I buy pots or food this week?’ question, with these you can still eat as well!! they have a small batch handmade feel but large scale production prices - we love that x
This giant terracotta beauty is only $29, and seeing eye $34 LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE
The geodesic greenhouse has the most earthy, calming force for me...I’ve been a sick little pup this week and although I wasn’t up to opening yesterday I still went to the nursery to water the greenhouse...the calm I get from it just being me and the plants in our dome is so soft and gentle and sweetly meditative time stops as does worry and stress as I give life affirming water to my plants and they give me life affirming happiness in return #nurserygirllife #simplestjoys Although I’m still a little rough around the edges Katherine is fortunately working today so you won’t be subjected to my pathetic-ness, pop in, enjoy her beautiful smile and get a chill recharge in the dome #peace @mali_and_wolf
HOT WEEKEND TIP: 1. Drive down to Jan Juc 2. grab a coffee from @swell_cafe 3. toss some change into the guitar case of the child prodigy that is @finniganaugust who’ll be busking out the front then 4. wander 20 meters down the street into our special @arizona.living space and pick some green for your life, before 5. heading south 75 meters to the stunning cliff top hike out to Bells Beach and back (an easy half hour each way, if you want more then you can continue on past Southside and through the magical Ironbark to Pt Addis - heck you can follow the track all the way to Aireys if you want #takeapicnicforthatdistance) before 6. coming back to pull up a chair in the sun to reward yourself with a cheeky afternoon cocktail at @therockjanjuc
Sounds like a lot of tasks but I promise you it’s as enjoyable AF and who doesn’t like coffee, tunes, plants, hiking, cocktails & food? #thebest #weekendsorted #yourewelcome #coffeefoodplantshikingcocktails #thebestinlife #absolutleymykindofweekend ♀️
Bubba String of Pearls are back and we are pumped These fellas are so so easy to keep! It saddens me when customers come in and say they have ‘failed’ with them in the past...For string of pearls to survive well indoors you need to remember they’re a succulent, this means they want to be near/in window getting lots of really bright light, and the soil needs be drying out before you begin to consider watering again.
Also NEWS FLASH they LOVE being outdoors!!!
Please chat up your local nursery person and get plant placement advice from someone who lives and breathes plants, interiors magazines are beautiful, but they are going to pop plants where they look best for a photo, which is not always where it’ll live best for many years to come #makefriendswithyourlocalnurseryperson #dontalwaystruststyledphotos #unlessitsaspecialarticleaboutplants #stylistspleasedonthateme
