“Greening” our tropical home

We’ve been pretty busy for the past week “renovating” our house!

My feeling is that people here in Hoi An are very big on plants and bonsai. No matter how shabby a house might look, in its front yard there’re always frangipani, or some exotic, colorful tropical blossoms, or different kinds of palm trees and cactus. I spot people’s lovely plants and flowers every single day. I admire their beauty, and I get jealous! After one year of jealousy, I decided to add more green to our house and have been loving it so far!

I realize that adding indoor plants can transform our whole living space and it can be addictive. I don’t fancy clothes or shoes or bags anymore. Every time I see a nice piece of clothing, my brain automatically does the math to see how many plants I can buy with that money. My husband must be very happy to hear that!

Plants and pots are very reasonable here in Hoi An, so we’ve been going to a plant nursery almost every day for a week now, and we’re quite happy with what we’ve gotten.

Here are two more pictures of our home in case you’d like to take a look!
