Backyard is not only a place for laundry or cooking matters. Backyard is a place where I could natters and observes my green friends grow. Though, space is a concern and constraint, we have to live with it. To me, space is not about how much you own, it’s all about how much you’re optimizing it.
We can’t change the size of the box, but we are able to change the setting within. A potted plant wouldn’t obstruct our movement so much. But when you feel so sick about the piled up laundry and the undone dishes, take a glance at this little green fairy, it’s smiling at you. You would be sure, all along you are not doing the mundane work alone.
Sometimes, they will laugh over my cooking skill.
Sometimes, they feel so shy to tell you.
Sometimes, they just can’t breath over the oily stuffs and trying to jump out of the window.
You can consider owning air plant, if space is really constraints.
Some are slim and elegant.
Some are just very space compromising.
Most importantly, we need a space for green within ourselves.
