Even as a little girl, nature was a big part of my life. I spent countless hours exploring the great outdoors and learning about its incredible variety of plant life. As I grew older, my love for nature only grew stronger, and I decided to turn my passion into a career.

Today, I have a healthy collection of houseplants that I care for with great devotion. And as a mother of two amazing boys —ages 4 and 11, I’m passionate about instilling a love of nature in the next generation.

Through my contributions to this blog, I hope to inspire others to connect with nature and develop a deeper appreciation for the natural world. My articles will cover a wide range of topics, including plant care tips, plant design, and the benefits of spending time in nature.
