Indoor Gardening

Although snowflakes the size of dinner plates are falling outside, I'm puttering in my garden!

I've turned a cloche into a mini terrarium.  ~

If you want to learn the proper way to do this go to Miss Kopy Kat and follow her tips on what drainage to use and what plants are best suited to this form of gardening.  I intended to do that and then remembered I was lazy and just grabbed a hunk of moss and dirt from the front yard.  I added a couple of tablespoons of water and plopped it under the dome.  I did this a week ago and the moss is doing fine. Something that looks like a Forget-Me-Not has sprouted up in there.  How much fun would that be to grow indoors?

A dollar store bird and some eggs add to the fun.  Add a French tablecloth and I have Springtime In Paris!  Set out my grandmother's rose teacup and a napkin with floral cutwork, that she did herself, and I've trampled down the winter blues for another day!

Maeve thinks I've gone mad and won't come out from under the table.  She has no idea this is saving her from the horrors of the puppy I was going to get for some winter fun!

Have a day of living in whatever fantasy you feel like!
