There are flurries on the forecast for this weekend. Among many other things that come to mind, it's about time to bring my ferns inside. I have never successfully kept a plant alive so I'm a little terrified that bringing them in our house will be almost as slow a demise as leaving them out in the cold. Matthew gets full credit for keeping them not only alive but thriving over the past nine months. He's the boss of the outside.
Of course my next question, where the heck to I put these things. They are way too big to set up on a bookshelf or table. I searched on pinterest to see where other people display extra large sized ferns. The number one clear answer is in the fireplace. Obviously we aren't the only ones who can't use our fireplaces right now. We haven't had them inspected so for now it's display only. I can't say I'm fully 100% in LOVE with this look, but for practicality purposes I'm going to give it a try.
Now that you've seen lots of examples, what are your thoughts? These rooms all make it look so good right? I would obviously love to have a fire in our fireplace but that will have to wait until after we get it inspected. We are fortunate to have two fireplaces but I really see this more in a living room or den situation. One of which is in our dining room where I don't really see us lighting a fire. Although sitting around the dining room table with lots of good food, wine, and friends with a rumbling fire in the background sounds incredible, its not really our life right no and I have to be realistic. A fern would get more use.
Love it or leave it?
