Bloomingful Peach began as a place to share my love of homemaking and plant care, but as with any passion.
Growing up as a kid in the seventies, we had some pretty strict rules when it came to our home. My brother and I weren’t allowed to use the “guest towels” in the bathrooms (does anyone even use guest towels?). We weren’t allowed to walk down the front staircase, due to leaving footprints on the hideous green carpeting.
As I grew into adulthood, all the rules and regulations of my youth were tossed away like an old misshaped bra. Although I appreciated a clean, neat, and organized home, I never enjoyed living in what I called a “museum”.
I believe a home should not only reflect who you are, but it should also look lived in. Houseplants enhance that lived-in look. Do you want to know a secret?
Owning houseplants helps you keep your home tidier. I kid you not! As a plant parent you want what’s best for your plants, and having dust close to the plant can jeopardize their growth by not allowing them to get all the light they require.
Who said cleaning has to be a chore? If you hate to clean (has anyone said, “I love to clean”?) but you love your houseplants, this may just give you the extra nudge to get in there and clean while you’re watering your plants.
Bloomingful Peach is here to help you decipher some of life’s sticky subjects when it comes to plant care, being a successful plant parent, and how to incorporate quick and easy techniques into your home life such as cleaning tips and some easy home maintenance tips.
Though my own trials of learning how to be a success when it comes to taking care of all of the amazing houseplants that fill my home with love, joy, and happiness, I would like to take this opportunity to share my success (and some failures) with you.
You see, you’re not alone in being a plant parent and a great homemaker. I’m sure some of your houseplants are as temperamental as mine. One day they’re doing wonderfully and the next day they’re dropping leaves and dying. You think you’re doing something wrong, but the truth of the matter is; you’re not.
Houseplants are peculiar. As much as you try to do your best, they don’t respond the way they should when you’re taking proper care of them by giving them everything they need to be happy, and healthy plants.
Whether you’re lacking adequate lighting, your space is too small, or you’re constantly being bombarded by unwelcome pests, just know I’m here for you and I will do my best to provide you with the most up to date content on how to be the best plant parent you can.
Don’t ever give up in your homemaking and houseplant journey, and most of all, never give up on yourself.
