Manny and Home Organizer

Favourites: The majority of my 85 plant-children were adopted into the family via clippings from friends or by me saving a plant left on someones stoop. While many of those plants are not the most visually ‘unique’ or ‘original’, they all have a ‘unique’ story beyond the foliage that is special to me – plus they were ZERO DOLLARS! Those are my favorite plants – Pam, Carolyn, Giancarla, Irena – the ones that tell a story. And are literally priceless!

Introducing People with Plants Art

Amy from Girls with Plants and I have teamed up to curate a collection of people with plants themed art. The Instagram account will showcase a range of different media and styles from all over the world and focus on diversity.

We have so much art saved in our accounts, often inspired by the images we post, so we created this account to bring them to you.

To be involved, tag your artwork with #peoplewithplantsart or @peoplewithplantsart and, of course, follow us!

We look forward to seeing the People with Plants Art Community grow! (more…)
