Living texture

This jumbo sized fern has been living out on the porch quite happily all summer long. However,Saturday night the temps dipped down into the low 30’s and I was afraid it wouldn’t survive the cold temps so I brought it inside. I love the texture it adds to the room but with my brown thumb it probably won’t survive longer than a couple of months in the house…………..

Des, I love the shutters with the bird prints hanging on them. My ferns inside have done pretty well all summer, but not to sure if they will last.

Mine only last a couple of weeks when I bring them in, I don't think they like to be moved!

I seem to kill all my ivys but I have had 3 ferns living for over 2 years! I water once a week and they love a weekly mist too... Your fern, shutters, bird prints...love it all.

Love this look. I have had a pair of shutters I took off a heap of curb side trash (yes, I really did that!) in my garage for a year waiting for the perfect project to use them in. I'm stealing this idea!

Hi Des, I love the shutters with the little bird prints. So pretty!
I have never had luck with ferns. I have two dead ones sitting outside for the garbage man to pick up.
