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.
