This adorable houseplant-filled, mobile nursery—brainchild of Samantha Crowley, owner of West Seattle boutique, Fleurt—will be cruising Seattle’s hot spots all summer. This month, you can find Pili—yes, that’s its name, the shortened version of Crowley’s favorite plant, Pilea Peperomoides—parked at the West Seattle Summer Fest, the SoDo Flea Market (SoDo, 3701 Seventh Ave. S; sodoflea.com) and the plaza outside Starbucks headquarters (SoDo, 2401 Utah Ave. S)
