48 Photos: 4/48 Texture

After seeing Pat's early entry for our photo challenge this week, I got excited to take photos too! Setting my work tasks aside, I took a 30-minute break to take photos for my entry this week. In fact, I got too excited that I want to submit not just one, but two photos! Haha.

I have been obsessed with decorating our home the past few weeks. Since I cannot afford all the furniture I want, I turn to home décor. Lately, I have been acquiring indoor house plants. They are definitely nice ways to prettify a home easily.

Statice Flowers. These are flowers that you can put in a vase and they last for a long time since they retain their color after they have dried up. I read about them on Jenni Epperson's blog. I have long searched for where to buy them. The flower shops near our home and in ATC don't seem to carry them when I checked. Lo and behold, I found them in SM City Sucat Hypermarket!

Cactus Rose. I first found them in home department stores where they sell fake ones of these babies. Fortunately, I found a real cactus rose in ATC for the same price as the fake one! They're easy to maintain. All you need to do is water them once a week. Don't water them excessively as they won't like it. 

There you go! My photo challenge for the week has been dedicated to my beloved house plants.

Ooh, nice flowers! The first is so dainty. I love the purple with accent-like tiny white blossoms. :) And the rose cactus looks like a lovely mandala!
