I tried... making terrariums

And terrariums is with a 's', because, as usual, I couldn't try only one. When I make, I make a batch. I make 10. 25. 100. Well those things you don't do 100. I have already so many plants, I don't even have place for terrariums. But I had to try. So I did. 4 of them.

Bought some glass jars in thrift shops and nice cheap little plants that I could divide. Small rocks, charcoal, soil - exactly the order you put them in the glass containers. Found some kitschy miniature terrace furniture and tiiiiiny white rocks in a dollar shop. Et voilĂ ! Des heures de plaisir and now I have little gardens all over the place. Might give away some of them as I definitely have no more room for green friends (counted 21 plants) - even if I wish I could live in a jungle.

Photos are not very nice due to the condensation caused by humidity (took them too late!) but here are 2 of them...
