Kokedama – Japanese String GardensJanuary 17, 2012
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I came across such an amazing concept. Kokedama – Japanese String Gardens!! Artist and Botanist, Fedor Van der Valk, has designed a vast series of String Gardens. Just in time for all the spring bulbs that are out right now, these hanging plants are such a beautiful and serene display. I can’t help but feel a calmness when I look at these pics. I think it’s the combination of the plants, the mud, the moss and the scent of them all combined. Hurry up Spring!
Muscari (Grape Hyacinth) and Tulips are a sure sign that Spring is coming (eventually).
This indoor hanging spring garden looks so serene. I could sit in there for hours.
Cobra lilies blow my mind! I have never seen them so big! These guys are actually carnivorous plants and live off of eating insects. They are quite similar to the pitcher plant where they catch water and lure their prey in!
Poppies! These are one of my fave flowers!
The great thing about green plants is that they purify the air and creates clean oxygen! So bringing some green indoors is always a great idea and will guarantee to liven up any space.
Stay tuned, Shannon and I are going to attempt to create our own version of these string gardens!
Anyone missing the warm weather as much as I do? How do you cure these January winter blues?
