Earth Days (and Nights)

Terrariums (and pictures) by Paula Hayes

I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about terrariums. I was obsessed with them for a while as a kid because I think it was one of my father's hobbies for a short time in the 70's. So I did a google image search for "terrarium" and through a cool public blog called Artocracy,
found these amazing blown glass terrariums by artist and gardener Paula Hayes.
Make your own. Go to Inhabit for directions. I like Mighty Girl's tips as well on which plants worked for her and which didn't (and her terrarium came out so nice didn't it?). Smith and Hawken has a few very pretty containers too, but it might be more fun to just find your own. OK. Going back to bed now.
