Now that I live in a small apartment on the fifth floor, I have no grass or garden area. All of my gardening will be done in pots. I previously showed some photos of a cyclamen that my friend gave me – that was my first plant here in the new place. I have also started my little cactus collection on my pink plant stand and I’ll share some shots of those sometime soon too.
I’ve now added two terrariums to my space and I love them. This one is an open terrarium in the shape of an apple (it’s my iTerrarium 😋) – it has an opening at the front and requires watering once or twice each week. It is filled with tiny succulents and is it’s own lovely little microenvironment.
Open terrariums are better suited to succulents, as they don’t require very much water very often. Being open, it stops moisture building up so that the succulents grow properly. Also, they can be exposed to direct sunlight, since the heat that builds up can escape.
Have you ever kept a terrarium? While not strictly “in the garden”, I’m hoping Jude accepts this for her Macro in the Garden challenge.
Also, I’ve been nominated by both Robin at Reflections for My Soul and Pauline at Gypsy Life to participate in the Seven Days of Nature challenge, where we post a nature photo each day for seven days and invite nominate someone to join the challenge each day. Robin shares my passion for flower photography and Pauline shares wonderful photos from her home on the Gold Coast near Brisbane and her travels. Please go visit their blogs, you won’t be disappointed.
Today I’d like to nominate Deb from Deb’s World to join the challenge. Deb is a wonderful blogger who inspires me all the time. She shares her world via her iPhone, often giving us shots she takes while on her running adventures. The link above will show you some fantastic shots of Uluru in The Northern Territory.
