Urban Jungle Bloggers: My Plant Shelfie...

When I saw the theme for this month's Urban Jungle Bloggers, I straight away thought I'd like to take part. I wanted to take part in the others but somehow never quite got round to it. Now, however, I do have a little more time and no excuses.

Then I remembered that it was exactly because I don't have any shelves that I bought my old pottery bench from a vintage trader a while back! That's my shelving.
