ON THE PLANTHUNTER TODAY: #ecosexuality - Earth as lover, not mother. The earth, our home, needs our love badly. Fall deeply, passionately and fully in love with it. Not as a needy child, but as an engaged, loving, respectful and caring partner. Be an ecosexual. ⠀

We're getting ecosexy on TPH today. Drop by the link in bio for more on ecosexuality as well as a bunch of ecosexy acts to get you in the mood for ecolove. ⠀

'I designed the garden from scratch when we built the house,' says @jennyroseinnes of her lush Bowral home and garden. ‘I design the floor plan the way I like the house to live. Always, in my mind, is what I will look out on to when I enter the house. Once the house starts taking shape then I stand in the space and imagine what I want to look at. That’s how the garden starts developing. It’s important to me that the house and garden both come together as one.’ Check out Jenny's gorgeous place on TPH today. Link in bio. Images by @abbie_melle
