Green with...Admiration...

I certainly admire Flora Grubb-- she has the perfect name for her career and her job involves growing awesome plants and create really cool plant constructions! As I don't have a very green thumb, ("chartreuse" is pushing it), I love that she works with succulents because they are the one plant variety that the average chartreuse-thumbed gal can keep alive and her creations are so. ridiculously. cute.

Her upside down plants remind me of a Dr. Seuss illustration:

A living holiday wreath!

A little fresh greenery brightens the snowy holidays:

My favorite Flora Grubb creation: a vertical garden! Imagine watering your walls... ;)

Check out her company's website for more green-tastic creations! She also blogs on her website and provides instructions for creating her living masterpieces. After browsing on her site, I think there might be more things to add to my Christmas list....!
