Hello Monday

Hello Monday and hello my lovely friends. Hope you had a good weekend. Did you do anything special? I hope some of you got to spend it with your mothers. My mommy is far away {Dubai} so I got her a book that I know she will enjoy and we chatted on the phone. I started to pack for BA, {2 more sleeps}, replanted hostas and ferns, among other things. Almost everyone in the neighborhood was out tending to their lawns. Dont you just love the smell of freshly cut grass?

A while back I found some moss in our garden that I decided to use to start a terrarium garden {miniature succulent and moss gardens in glass containers}. I first came across terrariums  in Domino magazine and have been fascinated with them ever since. Terrariums are fairly easy to maintain. Depending on the plant, they need indirect sunlight and are suitable for most corners of your home. My guest bath gets very little sunlight so a moss terrarium with a couple of succulents should work well there.

Glass jars make good terrarium containers. Try reusing empty food jars. Or look for assorted containers at Ikea like this and this. Whether you live in a tiny apartment or a mcmansion, a terrarium will add interest to unexpected corners of your home. You can also buy pre-grown moss terrariums from Viva Terra and Etsy store made by mavis.
