Art + Interior + a little astrology

Doesn't Olaf Hajek's beautiful paintings make you want to run to your local nursery 
and buy mass quantities of plants?  

Good, cause it's also incredibly trendy right now to cram your house with foliage.


Here's some inspiration for ya:

Now here's where astrology can help.  
Did you know that planting by the moon's sign can help you with gardening? 
 By determining if she is either in a barren or fertile state, and which sign she resides, you can use the moon for your horticultural benefit. 

The moon changes signs every two and half days.  Go here to figure out what it's in each day.

The fertile signs are Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, Libra, and Capricorn.

The barren signs are Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Virgo, Gemini, and Aquarius

But in my experience, use Cancer, Pisces and Taurus whenever possible.  Cancer is great for vines. With Libra, I have had wonderful results with showy flowers.  Gemini is great for succulents, and Aries is good for weeding.  With anything below ground, like potatoes, use Capricorn.

Good Luck and happy planting!
