And So the Magnificent Obsession Begins...

Almost as soon as I penned my Friday Five, mentioning the therapeutic value of endulging in some strange obsession during the "cabin fever" season, I came upon photos of moss terrariums like this one. (Search the term on Etsy .)

Is this not cool?

I enjoy terrariums, and once kept one going -- even got a violet to bloom in it once -- for several years. But I really like the minimalism of moss.

I might have to do something about this.

I saw some of those on Etsy too!And was reminded of many years ago (nearly 40!) when terrariums first came to my notice and I had one. My most successful plant-growing experience ever; I had to give it away when I was sent abroad. I'm a little tempted too.

I gave a terrarium to my mom when I was in second grade. It was a mother's day project. It lasted until about three years ago. They're cool plants.
