This week brought a little taste of warm weather into our lives and – wouldn’t you know it – I simply cannot stop thinking spring. Flower beds, fresh mulch, and pastel sundresses feel like they are just around the corner, but the wonder of spring isn’t quite here yet.
IN THE MEANTIME I put together a list of my favorite faux plants, tiny trees, and tools that will bring a little sunshine into your workplace. Caring for friendly flora is a great way to relieve stress during the workday. Plants never go out of style, and they are super useful if you need something to talk about with new clients. Try it. You might surprise yourself!
Pro Tip: If you are new to the gardening game, your best bet is to stick with the succulents. They are almost impossible to kill and will survive enormous amounts of neglect. The perfect choice for most of us.

2 – Hawaiin Umbrella Indoor Bonsai Tree — Arrives healthy and 10 to 14 inches tall in a beautiful ocean-blue ceramic training bed. The Hawaiian Umbrella’s glossy green leaves are delicately divided, and its upright umbels produce deep orange-red berries.
