In 2020, during lockdown, I developed a new obsession: houseplants.
Which is a little inconvenient because we mostly live in a building site, given our epic cottage renovation project.
Actually, I think that’s partly what prompted it—I was so sick of dust and mess and not having nice things, I wanted some greenery and life.
And so I now have a growing collection of plant friends, both in my house and in my office.
How about you?
Do you have houseplants?
If you do, what made you grow things, and how do they make you feel?
If not, why not?
Set your timer and see what flows.
