Suddenly Green

When I bring all the tropicals in, the living room suddenly gets very green. Which is lovely, but often, they don’t actually bloom for months and months — the duranta is blooming heavily now, and the jasmines are starting, but there’s no sign of blooms on the bougainvillea, and may not be for months.

So sometimes I add a few silk flowers for a pop of color. I’m not really trying to fool anyone, but I’ve actually had guests who assumed they were real. 🙂
