FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Now that the Christmas tree is all packed up for another year, I’m longing for more green.  I was thinking of picking up a new fig tree from Home Depot this week and a few bulbs perhaps.  Thinking of those, I found a few images for inspiration.  A few bulbs in mason jars, a faux terrarium, a collection of plants on a pallet.  (Above image from Terrain). Here are 10 ideas to add some green to your space for the new year.
