Woodland Finds

18 Dec

The other day we took the dogs down to the woods for open playtime. There is a really wonderful pond there with all kinds of cool stuff. So we decided to do a bit of foraging. We gathered mosses, pitcher plants and one lone fern who was barely surviving the cold.

We brought it all home and I pulled out some of my milk glass collection and got started:

Woodland Finds

Beautiful pitcher plants, some unidentified creeping bog plant, sphagnum moss, reindeer moss and some lovely dried flower stems who will be used a little later…

Everything needed to create a lovely woodland planting: pea gravel for the bottom of the bowl, moss, creepers, pitcher plants, soil, a small air plant and a crystal for good luck.

Lay about an inch of gravel in the bottom of your bowl (especially if it doesn’t have drainage), then add soil. Plant the pitchers and pack the moss in around it. You’ll want to have a spray bottle handy for watering as well.
