Can you grow plants? Well, I ... really can't. I do have ONE plant that I've had for a couple of years, but it doesn't look great. I've tried lots of plants over the years and ... I struggle.
Then after reading The Nester's series on plants - and terrariums - I thought to myself "maybe I can grow one of those!"
I decided to make one with a lid, for one reason and one reason only. Mickey. The cat. He doesn't pose for pictures the way Inky did, so you'll have to wait to see him. I gotta get lucky.
Anyhoo, I was on a trip - the same one where I visited Bass Pro - and I bought an apothecary jar at Michael's with my 40% off coupon. Then went to Home Depot and picked up three little plants to fill it up with. Since I'm not a plant person, I have no idea what they are. I lost the little thingys that came stuck in the pot.
Oh I see me! At least sorta. It's really, really hard to photograph a glass.
I do know one is some type of fern. I mean geez, I have some plant sense. :)
I may try to find some miniature thing to go in there. I think a tiny church would be awesome. But considering I live MILES from any cool stores, it might take me a while!
Well, we'll see how long this green thumb lasts. These are supposed to be easier than a regular plant and believe me - I'm the perfect guinea pig to test it out!
So can you grow plants? If you can - lucky you! :)
I sometimes join the following parties -
