I keep seeing pictures of cute terrariums and mini gardens. I wanted one. So I decided to try my hand at it. It was an adventure. First of all, I needed a jar or bowl, so I found one in my sister's fort (she said I could use it) that was full of rotting vegetation of some sort. I cleaned it out and put some pepples and dirt in it. Then I needed to find my plants.
But I got sidetracked taking pretty pictures.
And making new friends.
And walking through and taking pictures of spider webs all aglow in the afternoon sun.
I found some moss and a little sprig of something to plant in my jar. I gave it a little water and brought it inside.
Then I searched the house for little things to inhabit my terrarium. I found a little bunny and Piglet. Perfect. And a bottle cap for good measure, just cuz I love bottle caps. One of my weird obsessions.
Now my mini garden lives on my bedside table. We'll see if it thrives or dies. But making it was sure a fun use of an afternoon. Because in my heart, I will always be a country girl who loves traipsing around in nature with only her imagination for a companion, discovering beautiful things that her Creator has made. And having a little piece of the beautiful indoors by my bed sounds lovely too. :)
P.S. Sorry for waxing poetic/nostalgic/sappy at the end there. ;)
