In January 2015 I was inspired to start a bottle garden after seeing this post by Woodland Gnome. I decided to go with a closed system because it’s a constant reminder of how our earth operates. Last week I was thrilled to see a little flower blooming in the mini-world.
I think the difference in leaf colour is due to flash being used in the second photo but I’ll do some research on fertilizing in a closed system in case something is missing in the soil.
I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

Beautiful ! Congratulations on nurturing your garden to flower !
Thanks for inspiring me to have another go after my last failure.
Life’s about having another go, and doing it better each time (we hope!) That little violet is too sweet and delicate. I would guess it enjoys the humidity and shelter of your terrarium. ❤
I wasn’t sure if the Violet would survive so it was a lovely surprise to see the flower.
