Bringing the Outside In


"A morning-glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books." —Walt Whitman

On the dreary and cold days of winter, few things offer a vibrant feel the way houseplants do. They appeal to our eyes; we're mesmerized by the colors in the petals and fascinated by their texture and size. Simply looking at a plant relieves stress and reduces your heart rate, and, of course, they help absorb harmful toxins.
