Today I am feeling excited. I recently shared with Zack that I miss being around more friends and I so desperately want to see them/people more. Yesterday I spent the afternoon with Elle and her daughter, Olive [the one who calls Bauer “Bauer-t” ~ with a British accent], and it was so fun! Shopping, lunch & playing with Bauer. Perfect :] And today, Zack, Bauer and I went on an afternoon walk in our neighborhood, wandering the streets around us and then stopping at the hardware store for potting soil, a knob to screw to the side of my desk so I can hang my purse, and some bird food; the pet store for a new leash and rope toy; and the flower shoppe for a plant.
We love our neighborhood and the local shops nearby. I ended up buying two plants at Amelia’s: one that I can’t remember the name of anymore :} and another called Angel’s Tears [the plant on the right]:
The best part of this walk was that I spent probably 20 minutes chatting with the lady at the flower shop ~ Christina, about plants and watering and how Amelia makes their own worm compost. [So neat!] Turns out Amelia’s is hosting a Terrarium Construction 101 class this Saturday, so I signed up! Seriously, how perfect is this? It has me feeling excited, inspired, happy… I’ve always wanted to make a terrarium, and this Saturday I’ll learn how + bring one home.
At one point while talking with Christina I mentioned I loved the smell of her flower shop. The dirt, the flowers, the misty air. It makes me feel alive. I suddenly want to learn more about succulents and potting and… terrariums :] Life has an amazing way of connection people and opportunities, yes?
Today’s 7 pretty things post is inspired by my visit at the flower shop & my upcoming class on terrarium-making.
♥ Terrarium: A sealed transparent globe or similar container in which plants are grown.
Do you have a Terrarium? Have you ever made one?
