I spent a relaxing day walking the dogs, watching Mr. Green Jeans rototill the vegetable garden plot, and went out searching for moss and plants for some dish gardens.
I made this upcycled punch glass planter of wild violets for my mother for Mother's Day. I added a heart stone from the river, and tied on a pottery heart from Ruby Floy.
I had some moss left over from mom's gift, so I decided to make my own dish garden out of a pottery bowl, and just kept going!!! I made 3 more, including one out of a clear tea pot, similar to one I saw on Moss Acres . The teapot is lined with white beach stones collected years ago, from a beach on the north shore of LI.
The pottery bowl has a tiny Red Rose Tea Wade turtle, with a vintage ceramic mushroom, and a crystal quartz from upstate NY.
The small round pottery garden is moss and lichen with a tiny green frog perched on the rock.
The little ceramic bird with nest was just crying to have some moss in the nest!! I have to find some tiny egg shaped rocks to add to it.
I also have a small fern from the woods- have to find the right container for that one, with some more moss.Tomorrow's project.........................
I needed a spray bottle for all these little gardens- so, here we have it - recycling at its best!!!LOL
I just love the smell of the moist moss- when I close my eyes and inhale, I imagine myself walking thru the woods.
