Urban Jungle Bloggers

25 Apr

Time for another Urban Jungle Bloggers post.  I had so much fun with last month’s post and especially admiring all the other images done by some seriously talented bloggers, stylists and photographers.  This series is really taking off and I love being part of it.

This month Judith and Igor chose the theme “Show your green balcony or windowsill”.  I love the idea of having windowsills overflowing with assorted green plants in colourful pots.  It gives a room so much life and colour.

Unfortunately we have to keep our windowsills pretty clear due to the fact that we have to open our windows twice a day in order to close and open shutters (too many break-ins to risk leaving them open all the time).  But living in gorgeous Italy makes it all worth it.

The last week I was visiting my in-laws in Belgium and since they have such a beautiful garden filled with the most lovely plants of every kind I decided to do my UJB shots there.  And being the great sports that they are they didn’t even mind me rearranging their whole terrace and moving plants, pots and garden furniture here and there.  I lucked out in the in-law department.

And since it was a warm and sunny day I decided to use an outside stoop next to a large window.  I guess you could call it an outdoor windowsill?

IMG_7203As you can see my in-laws have a great collection of Tuscan flower pots (bought at a shop close to me for a fraction of the price as in Belgium).
IMG_7206They also have a great collection of green plants and succulents of every kind.  And I have no idea what half (or more) of them are called.IMG_7197Fermob furniture in tones of purple and red match the whole garden perfectly.IMG_7185I couldn’t resist including a few colourful flowers.
IMG_7211-001Doesn’t this look like the perfect place for an afternoon tea and book reading session?  And look, I accidentally made it into one of my UJB images!

Can’t wait to check out all the other Urban Jungle Bloggers posts this month.  If you’re interested their FB page is overflowing with lovely greenery.
