Last week I went thrift hunting and I found a great old big wine bottle for one dollar. (It's called a carboy for the ones who are interested) I knew immediately I wanted to make a bottle garden!
It was a very popular thing to do in the seventies. Here is some information how to do it: http://www.flowers-and-garden.com/bottle-garden.php

Tadaaaa! Grin

That looks so pretty. My Mom had these all over the house in the 70's and maybe into the 80's.  I had forgot all about them.

She had one in a 5 gallon glass water bottle. Can you imagine putting the plants in that little top hole?!? She had taped a dowel rod to a wooden spoon to reach down in there.   Cheesy

ohhhhh, now I want to make one too.  Tongue

There is just something wonderful about making a perfect little world inside a protective bubble... With the world as it is I think your creation is not just pretty but good tharapy too.
