Inspiration, Monday's Pretty Things

MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: Green, green, green (plants)

If you follow Oaxcaborn on Instagram, you know about our succulent planting adventures (see below photo) so it’s no surprise that this week’s Monday’s Pretty Things is all about greenery! This was inspired by a couple of things — one, the incredible Urban Jungle Bloggers project, and two, the fascinating conversation here about the challenge of spending time outdoors if you, like many people, are an apartment dweller. (Most people don’t actually live on a rambling ranch!)

Hopefully these Pretty Things — and the #UrbanJungleBloggers Pinterest board — will inspire you to create your own green oasis no matter where you live.

LIFE IN PHOTOS :: Turning Cacti Upside-down

Sometimes, on nice evenings, if dinner’s ready and the floodgates of heaven aren’t open, we step outside for a few minutes waiting for Papa to get home.

We talk to ants, point at airplanes, tell birds to hurry up and fly, and ask where all the puddles went.

Sometimes we stop for a moment, pick up our favorite succulent, think…
