Trying on my green thumb


I’m back from an unexpected little blogging break.  My mom was here last week and we spent some good quality time together with the kids.  I even pulled Super-E out of school one day so we could all have a little fun together.

We had a wonderful time and even did a little planting and terrarium making.  I have been really wanting to incorporate more plants into my home.  I had 5 plants, but dreamt of a magical, lush, green home environment. Plus, they are so good for your health! Unfortunately my cat loves to eat plants, which is one of the reasons I had so few.

Terrariums seem to be the perfect solution for a plant-eating, leaf-puking cat.  After getting THIS great book, I was inspired to start some terrariums of my own.  A little trip to the nursery and to the thrift store for cheap glass containers and we were in business.

I also replanted a few of my house plants into bigger pots and added some chocolate mint and a fern to my home collection. The mini cactus and succulents caught my eye as well. I have been swooning over this amazing succulent collection and I especially like this herb/succulent combo.

Maybe eventually, I can hang some plants from the ceiling to prevent that cat problem.

    Hey Regina,
    Plants bring such life. I am sure your home feels so much more wonderful (I am sure it already is a lovely place) with these beauties.
    Your cat sure has good taste too 🙂

    What a lovely arrangement ..I would love to do that again ..always so cheerful to look at . But plants die at my house..I’ve been told it has something to do with some kind of earth radiation under our house ??

    Oh, those are lovely! Lush little gardens within a glass “dome” – so cute!

    I have a ton of plants in my house AND a cat, and the only way I manage to keep her off of them (especially when she decides she wants to potty in the pot, no pun intended) is by sticking some wooden skewers in the pot. Thing is, that doesn’t stop her from eating (poor tulips!).

    I think you have found a great solution to the problem and a great way to bring freshness into your home.

    OH, Lovely! I seen some on Etsy for sale.

    I like the cover of that book. Does it
    talk about growing herbs in terrariums too?

    God Bless You and Yours and
    Your Creative Life and Health!!!

  7. All of the plants and containers are just adorable. I hope they all thrive and bring beauty to your home.
