This last month has been a good chance to get back into the habit of actually reading books again. I don’t know how long it had been but I had lost my bookmark so that probably indicates it was a fair while.
Recently I read a very interesting book called The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly and even wrote a long book review all about it, which you can read here. It’s an allegory about motherhood through the eyes of a hen called Sprout, one of the most endearing characters I’ve ever encountered. The book by Sun Mi Hwang is a subtle examination of animal welfare on farms so I’m sure my veggie/vegan readers will enjoy it. :)
Next up it’s a new houseplant! I spent my weekend at various garden centres and came home with two new house plants, a pilea and a rosary vine. I’ve seen both of these plants on Instagram – they are very Insta-friendly – and have been on the look out. I don’t think I could ever get tired of looking at the strange chains of heart-shaped leaves that are now cascading over my mantlepiece.
Finally, another garden centre steal was this gorgeous vintage plant pot that has been distressed. It’s quite heavy but small and I don’t yet have a plant to put in it. Any suggestions?
