Little Bits of Green

A new moss terrarium
to replace the other one that died.
I finally found
a string of pearls plant!
I painted that little rock with
red acrylic ink.
More painted rocks tomorrow...
Some treasures from our walks.

Do you home-school your kiddos? I'm new to your blog, so I don't yet know much about you, but from what I do know, I think you'd be a wonderful teacher.

Lovely! I adore terrariums, and pretty much all plants. That string of pearls plant is adorable. The hubby and I have some grand plans for carnivorous plant terrariums - just have to take the trip to Logees greenhouse to get the plants!

That "string of pearls" plant is so neat! Of course, none of it is as neat as your amazing photography skills. I'm so glad you share with us...

I painted my first rock when I was in high school. The rock looked like the head of a pelican with it's large beak--so that's what I painted. Wish I knew where that rock was now!

i think moss needs air circulation to survive. Might want to take that lid off.

oh how fun! I remember those string of pearls plants from when I was a child, great find!

I am going to try something with moss soon. Found some that got tossed when the driveway was snow plowed this winter. I love the stuff and have even mixed moss with beer I think it was in an old blender to pour inbetween stones to grow more several years ago. (we don't use that blender anymore, hee hee)

Thanks again for your wonderful photos. They have such a calmness and brightness to them.

The string of pearls plant reminds me of my grandmother who had one when I was little. I have tried to grow them, but I guess we don't have enough light here.
