Miniature environment in a jar - I can see this with tiny animals, etc. Would make a nice terrarium on a desk - escape to another world for a moment, or, provide some inspiration for what might be coming next. ******************************************* - #terrarium #garden #house #farm #miniatures #whimsy - (interior plants + fairy garden boards) - tå√

Regrow roses!!! "My neighbor has a row of roses, which he took as cuttings. I asked how he took them. He simply plunges the cuttings into the ground. But his secret of success is the humble potato! Before planting cuttings, he pushes the bottom end into a small potato, which he believes keeps the cuttings moist as they develop roots. It sounds crazy, but his row of allotment roses is proof it works." (quote from link)

The Gardenia Bonsai Tree is known and loved for the splendid, white flowers that bloom from its branch March through June. They are popular Mother's Day Gifts and add color to any home decor! The flowers have a texture like a fine, white suede that produce a wonderful fragrance that has been used to make perfumes for centuries. The dark green foliage combined with the white of the flowers is sure to throw a splash of color and scent where you need it most!
