When a gardener shops for furniture, her eye is drawn to the wood furniture with the carvings of leaf branches.
She wonders what plant that might be and if it is botanically correct. After all, she would not want just any plant to twine up her bed post or decorate the corner of a chest of drawers.

She notices this green bedside table,
And thinks that even though she likes green, it is so bright it might keep her up at night. She later sees this arrangement of potted fake plants on another bedside table,
And thinks it would be nice to wake up with it by your bed, only she would want the plants to be real.
She checks out some of the upholstered furniture,

Just for the arrangement on top.
