Fall, Nests, and Micro Gardens

Nature has always been a huge inspiration to me.  The colors, the shapes, and the human hand in curating it.   This spring, I got really into terrariums and indoor gardens.  The flower inside the "cloche" above is a miniature violet.  African violets and similar varieties tend to do well in an enclosed area, though this guy hasn't given me a bloom yet.  A little more singing and plant food may help.  When I began this obsession, I picked up a really great book on the subject.  The New Terrarium is a splendid resource for all things miniature garden including planting directions and a great list of suitable plants for cozy indoor growing.
