… and here is the last challenge of the year for the UrbanJungleBloggers platform. They asked us to share our Planty Wishes for 2016: to be creative and to feel free to interpret this rather open topic. An illustration, a table setting, a vignette, greeting cards, a wishlist of plants – whatever inspires us to show our planty wishes and positive energy!
Ha, and for me that was definitely a table setting. There wasn’t any doubt about it – as a wonderfully decorated table is for me a perfect symbol for this season of the year, representing warmth, welcome, friendship – eating and celebrating together!
And of course those are my wishes for the new year, too: that there may be peace and friendship, mutual respect, health and well-being for all those near and far! May we surprise each other with lots and lots of positiveness, support, and openness!

Thanks like always to Judith & Igor for having set up the UrbanJungleBloggers Platform in the first place. I wish you and everyone else who is participating in this great platform all the very best for totally enjoyable holidays and a peaceful and creative new year 2016!!!
