I made a thing!

Flushed with the success of my terrarium (yes, thank you – it’s looking really good) I decided to try my hand at a moss garden.

I really love moss. We have a lot of it (this being England) and I tried to start a moss garden when we first moved here, but it turned out to be an unusually dry year and I was thwarted before I really began.

I had some moss left over from the terrarium project that I’ve been spritzing on the daily, so I thought I’d give it another shot.

Yes, you’re looking at a fern, a clump of moss and some rocks. It’s art, dammit!

It’s in a nice vintage 3-legged French terra cotta pot I snagged off Etsy, though, so if the garden fails, I have a nifty fruit bowl.

It must be a B&W effect, but at first glance I thought that was carrot tops and a baby hedgehog lying in a bed of potatoes.

Seriously, I hope that works, Stoaty, and I think it will. Every newly planted anything tends to look somewhat iffy until it has a little time to do its own thing.

Uncle Al!

Goodness, except for the carrots I was going to ask if she was making Steamed Mayo Hedgehog since I thought it was hedgehog and potatoes!

Charming! Especially in a nice vintage 3-legged French terra cotta pot 🙂

I wonder what it is in our human nature that even a small garden of green can be so soothing.

Even in black and white that is very calming.
