Growing between my house and my Mother's next door there is a very old, very big, and very rambunctious split leaf philodendron. It really wants to take over the world and I am constantly cutting it back, thinking what a horrible pest it is. Then yesterday while clicking through Pinterest images I got the idea of cutting some of the leaves and using them in the house...everything doesn't always have to be flowers.
I filled one of my larger blue and white containers, plopped them in it and set it in the middle of the dining room table. I am loving the simplicity of the arrangement and I think they make a rather nice impact, especially for a winter month.
I have no idea what the vase life of these will be, but I wouldn't be surprised if they lasted a rather long time...if not, I sure know where to get more!
I love it when a pest becomes an asset.
Brenda at: the Cozy Little House featured La Vie Quotidienne on her blog this week. I am both overwhelmed and very flattered. If you get a chance stop by Here and see the post. Thank you Brenda, what a wonderful treat for me! And you are right, my garden is my sanctuary and brings me much joy and pleasure.
Thank you for visiting, I hope your day is full of wonderful assets.
