So although I appreciate this makes me sound approximately 103 years old, I happen to have a bit of a thang for the Botanical Gardens here in Singapore. The Orchid Garden is just bananas good, but the whole place actually is a gorgeous respite from the heat and bustle of the city. We were there recently with the fam, and discovered a greenhouse I’d never seen before, the McNeice Bromeliad Collection.
It’s full of crazy alien-like air plants (aka bromeliads and tillandsias):
See the ones hanging up top with no soil or anything – felt like one of them was going to jump on my head and eat it. I may or may not have been watching too many sci-fi movies lately.
Weird yet strangely intriguing, no?
I know air plants are a bit of a fad right now and I suspect it might die down sooner than some, but I have to say I am fully ensconced on le bandwagon with this one, absolutely love these for a whimsical touch to a room.
Here are my faves…(some succulents in here also, you know I’m a sucker for succulents).
Loving this idea for a powder room, although not sure how functional it would be…
AMAZING on a roof deck or terrace, or even in front of a window actually – love!
All of these hanging pots/terrariums are pretty much the cat’s pyjamas:
And they’re also pretty cute in event design!
It’s the Grand Prix here in Singers this weekend so I need go get 3 days of work done in the next 8 hours…yikes. We’ve never been to one before, am pretty psyched to see it – full report next week.
What are you up to for the weekend loves, and what do you think of these ‘ere greenies? Do tell!
