I love terrariums! They’re the ideal blend of art and craft, gardening and decor – and you can create it to suit your own personal interest in gardening, whether you want to tend it or just admire it! (It all depends on what you put in it.) A terrarium can express you at your most idiosyncratic, or simply provide your weary eyes with a peaceful place to rest.
