We’ve had this old, empty terrarium kicking around for years. Uncle B’s mum gave it to him. I’ve always wanted to plant it up, the problem is…I have a purple thumb.

That’s what my mother told me, anyway: everything I touch dies. That’s not really fair – someone used my cucumbers to put out a greenhouse fire. They were doing fine before that. After the incident, I lost the will to horticulture.

Plucking up my courage, I decided to give it a shot. Looking into it, though, you need a little of a lot of things – soil, gravel, charcoal. I gave up and bought a terrarium kit on Etsy.

I think Uncle B, talented plantsman and keen gardener, is a little disgusted with me. You pay *way* over the odds for everything when you do it this way. But I had it all parceled out for me, just right – see above – including four nice little plants.

And moss! I love moss.

I’ve planted everything up. When everything settles in, I’ll take an ‘after’ picture for you. Unless it all dies…then you’ll never hear a word about it again.

Tomorrow. Six WBT. DEAD POOL ROUND 154.
