An illustration by Cécile Dormeau has just inspired an absolutely wholesome Twitter thread. After self-proclaimed Paramore and frog fan Martyna tweeted the picture where Dormeau confesses that she likes to buy herself a plant every time she's sad, the girl posted photos of her green 'friends', showing that she does the same. Soon, others started responding to Martyna's tweet with photos of their own 'buddies', and everything snowballed into a thread with over 420K likes and 96K comments -- one of the biggest plant lover parties online.

The illustration is a good example of Cécile's work. "I just draw what is around me in my daily life. All the observations I can make in my drawings are about my feelings, the late-night talks I have with friends, my sister's craziness, people I happened to see on the street, something I've read," she told Bored Panda. Anything really. "Whenever I live through an awkward situation, I’m like, 'OK, I’ll do a drawing about it as I guess I'm not the only one who had lived through this situation.'"

"I draw a lot about emotions to say that it’s okay to not feel great or happy all the time," Cécile explained. "It's OK to not be perfect. We all have to deal with our issues. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed, we are not able to say no, we feel guilty about not being productive, or we have unhappy relationships. As Instagram is a platform where people tend to show the best version of themselves, showing perfect lives, I want to say to people feeling bad that they aren't alone. And if people can identify themselves and laugh at my drawings and with it, and move forward to self-acceptance, that’s even better."

Coming back to plants, chances are that if you're aren't obsessed with them yourself, some of your friends might already be. It's a growing hobby. Mariella Trosko, the director of Hershey Gardens, said she's noticed that an increasing number of Millennials are embracing gardening - especially food gardening - for reasons including locally-sourced foods, sustainability, and wellness. Trosko added that millennials are also interested in using indoor plants decoratively for a calm and peaceful environment.

The 2016 National Gardening Survey, conducted by Harris Poll, confirms this trend. It estimated that 6 million new Americans took up gardening in 2015 - and that 5 million of them were Millennials.

There's probably more than one reason why Millennials are rediscovering nature's joy in their homes. Not only are they looking for more ways to surround themselves with peace and beauty, but the uncertainty of plant-growing is both a thrill and a reminder of the passage of time outside of the human experience.

I've been considering a corner bakers rack and now I know I'm getting one. I also liked the extra shelving you have. Very nice.

I like how you've "trained" your vine around the window. Your work area looks calming.
