The terrarium is lovely --- Mother Nature never fails to amaze me :) . Is the greenery a growing plant, and the branch a found item which had washed up on the beach? Or is the branch from an intertidal zone? (Asks the landlubber...)
They're moss- and lichen-laden twigs from a neighborhood tree -- snapped off in a wind/rain storm. And the greenery in the bottom is just more moss and lichen gathered from the ground. But the branches do look rather under-sea-ish, don't they? Mother Nature is lovely and surprising, indeed.
Oh my, I had completely pegged the branches as (somehow or another!) having coral growing on them! I should get out more --- clearly I'm not much of a landlubber either ;) .
Just lovely! I'm a big fan of moss and lichen -- collecting the windfall and arranging it in a glass bowl is brilliant. . .
Thanks, Frances. And the nice thing is, we can release these things "back into the wild" after we have enjoyed them for a bit.
I so want to come visit your home. Just so I can see all the lovelies in person. Those eggs. I feel like such a slacker mom because I got nothing out for Easter. I didn't even do baskets. I bought a plastic box of cookies from Fred Meyer and called it good. Maybe if I had such lovely eggs? Nah, probably not. I will just have to live vicariously through your photos. I hope April is a good month for you.
Aw, thanks Rita! Well the truth is we only managed to get the Easter decorations out the weekend before, and my daughter had to badger me a couple times to get it done. :-) I did manage to hide some eggs with a few bits of chocolate around the house (it was a rainy Sunday here) but no elaborate baskets here either. I hope April treats you well, too!
