Plenty of Light

6.28.2011

The other day I showed you a vignette on the chest in my great room that all started because I had to move the fern in the copper pot from the breakfast room to the sun room. Here is where the copper pot and fern ended up.

In the morning this table is bathed in sunlight.

The succulents are doing very well in here.


I saw this bird on someone's blog the other day(can't remember where) and then remembered I had one, too. I found it in the abyss in the bonus room.

Yep, I think there is plenty of light for the fern in here.

Now if I can just water it correctly and not kill it.


Have you had luck with ferns? Do you have a green thumb or a brown one?

Hope you join me tonight for the Wow Us Wednesdays party. I missed not having it last week so I hope you have lots to share this week.

The winner from the summer blog party for the bait bucket lantern from Farmhouse Wares
is The 2 Seasons.

  1. Beautiful vignette! Love the copper pot, and your fern looks so vibrant and healthy. I tend to kill my indoor houseplants, but ferns grow like mad around our waterfall out back. Love the little bird you have on the succulents tray, too! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love copper! When I was much younger I had a wonderful collection of it!
    This beautiful vignette has me thinking I might start another!
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. what a lovely room! your fern is doing beautifully ... i love ferns, they remind me of my grandma's yard ... she had a big patch of all ferns growing under the trees, it was so tempting to walk around in that patch of ferns ... but of course, we weren't allowed too! :) love that copper pot too!

  4. your new vignette looks wonderful. I love green plants in a room. It adds so much warmth. I just added two new plants to my family room and hope I can keep them looking good. Happy Tuesday. ~

  5. Ferns LOVE to be misted. If you have a spray bottle, give it a little mist everyday or so. It looks lovely.:)

  7. I think the way you put the pots on a tray is brilliant and that lamp shade might be my favorite one in your house! See you tonight...

  8. It looks great there Kim! I have a green thumb outdoors but it seems that indoors I have a brown thumb. I have to cement urns inside that I have tried ivy, ferns and other greenery in and they all die within a month.

  9. So lovely! I have ferns, but they are outside, either on the porch or on the basement patio. Both places only get partial sunlight. ferns like their leaves to be misted as well as having moist dirt. I shake my ferns once a week to get the dead leaves off. I only keep my outside ferns for one season.

  11. Had more success with sword ferns like the Kimberly Queen and Macho. Out they go in the summer and inside to a cool, bright place where they are misted daily and seldom watered with saved rainwater during the winter. Treat asparagus and foxtail ferns the same way. Your setting looks lovely. Copper is my very fav metal

  13. Love your beautiful sun room and copper pot. What a beautiful arrangement. I am not too much of a green thumb, but I do know that ferns like to have their leaves misted everyday and then water the dirt about once per week or so. Misting the leaves with a water bottle will help the leaves stay green, otherwise they tend to turn brownish and fall off.

  14. So pretty, I just love your copper pot and all of your beautiful plants! My mom always had ferns in her house, year round, and they are still one of my favorite houseplants. I have a decent green thumb, but not as green as my mom's was! Congratulations to the winner!

  16. I have great luck with faux ferns, Kim. The real ones, not so much. : ) Your succulents look great and I like that little bird on a twig you have in front of them.

  17. I love the new vignette! I remember those stripped pots you got at Scott's right?? I am OK with outdoor plants but don't keep a lot inside. I might try some succulents.

  18. Linda, not Scott's, but the Lakewood flea market in Cumming.

  19. Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful! Love it! Love that lamp too! And those succulents!

    I can grow ferns outside, but seem to struggle with them when I move them in. I don't think I have the "right" spot for them!

  20. Hi Kim, I love ferns but they start dying the minute I bring them inside the house. Your vignette of plants is beautiful and I am in love with the lampshade.

  21. Love the vignette. No, I cannot grow ferns, I finally gave up and bought the faux and it grows great. lol The plants look so good all grouped together. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  22. Kim, it all looks wonderful! I have a total brown thumb when it comes to ferns...must be the dry California weather, because my succulents and herbs thrive!

  26. I have always heard that if you water ferns with a little epsom salt, they will do really well. I believe it's 2 tablespoons per 1 gallon water.
    Hope this helps.

  27. All of my outdoor pretty flowers are dead. Toast. Yesterday it was 116, how can anything survive in this heat! Actually I have 3 tinnny cactus plants and what do you know, they are smiling and basking in the sun. I think they're sending me the message that this is a desert after all!

    Have a beautiful day, I love your plants, so perdy, Kim!

  28. Kim, it all looks great! That sunny window is perfect for many things. Wish I had that kind of light streaming in our home. ~ Sarah

  29. Hey Kim...love the fern! I've never put one inside, my grandmother always had huge ones inside...even in the winter! Both her hands must have been green...lol ;) She did always keep them in the sunroom, but when she was having company...one or two went to the foyer. She had a big, old Victorian and it was beautiful!

  30. I love ferns, but always manage to kill them. I'm hoping the sunroom in our new house will provide the perfect lighting for a fern. I love your copper pot, also =) Have a great day, Kim!

  31. That looks fantastic in the sunroom Kim...your fern is doing wonderful too.

  32. It looks really great in the sunroom. I love your fern in copper pot!

  33. I just love your copper planter. While I don't have the greenest of thumbs, it's also not brown but I have ZERO luck with ferns. I can't tell you how much money I've spent buying them over & over only to have them die over & over!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't have a brown or green thumb ... I have a "silk" one, so, my ferns always looks gorgeous !! LOL. Love the copper pot ... your fern will thrive there, I'm sure.

  35. Beautiful vignette and I am quite partial to the copper pot!!
    Love the colors of your room!!

    Hugs,

  36. Kim- I have had pretty good luck with ferns over the years. They like to be damp but not wet. So..water then well and then let the surface soil dry out. When you can stick your finger down in about an 1" and it dry then water it well again...repeat as needed!;>) Also, contrary to popular opinion...misting doesn't really help ferns. Everything looks good and that little bird you dug out of No-Mans-Land is really cute! xo Diana

  37. So pretty! I need me a copper pot now!

  38. I love this room!!! My indoor green thumb is not so great...better at outside plants. Love the copper planter!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love ferns - mine are outside since I don't have proper light exposure for them inside. I have a bit of a green thumb and I definitely get it from my Mom who can grow anything! Wish I had the talent for indoor decorating that you have!!

  40. Good luck with the fern. I love them, but they always die. I want to live in YOUR house. Everything you do is so inviting!!
    Blessings,

  41. Hope you can keep your fern alive, Kim! The succulents look good, so far. Just don't over-water- this comes from someone who learned her lesson. You know my issues with my brown thumb in the past- but if you've read my last few posts, at least my outdoor plants are doing well. :-) I think my sunroom needs more sun! I may bring in some of my plants from outside just to see if they'll make it.

  42. Each and every room in your house always look gorgeous... I always feel like I'm leafing through the pages of a decorating magazine whenever I visit you. This room looks sooo beautiful with all the right touches! The fern looks so lovely in that copper planter next to that beautiful urn-shaped lamp... loved it. I find it hard to grow ferns as well... I tend to kill them, especially during winter months. Loved your beautiful vignette. Thanks for sharing with us.~Poppy

  43. Hi Kim,
    The copper pot looks very pretty planted right there with the others.
    I like the little bird too.
    I do not have a green thumb, more like a sore one when it comes to keeping plants alive.

    hugs

  45. I am lovin' the lamp beside the fern! I have a green thumb for a while, then get sidetracked and usually end up brown! So sad. This is my favorite room! Always love to visit it! Christie

  46. Kim, love your ferns and succulents and the copper pot. I've always loved copper but it seem to go in and out of style. I happen to think it's a classic.
    Great vignettes,
    Babs
