I fell in love with a big hand blown glass jar in the Willow Garden (Hebden Bridges lovely florists) yesterday and knew immediately that it would look amazing planted up as a terrarium. I went online to find instructions which was easy as they seem to be quite in vogue at the moment. Isn't it funny how influenced we can be without even realising it! During this search i fell upon one of Gennines images which I favourited on Etsy ages ago. Her illustrations are lovely and her blog is truly inspirational. See how i have been influenced by her pictures. It's the same shaped jar and everything!
Anyway i love my terrarium (all day long I've been saying terranium, don't know where i got that from). I love the layers of pebbles, moss and compost and all the fresh green plants seem magnified in the glass. It is a miniature world....I want to make another now!
Thanks Gennine for letting me use your images!x
