The mantelpiece on our fireplace is very tall. It's a lot of empty space, just brickwork to look at.
My husband asked if I had any plant that could trail down over some of that. It is getting too hot outside for the potted mock strawberry anyways, so I brought two of those inside. So far they're doing great here (but crappy pictures of them)
To my surprise this one off the front porch is actually looking something like the first sample I saw of a hanging mock strawberry as houseplant, in an old book (from the seventies). I took this picture a few weeks ago when first brought the plants in- the trailing tendrils are twice as long now. Soon I will have to trim some so they don't hang over the fireplace doors!
