Sunday pursuits

I've been spending ample time blog browsing the past few days, and as usual, this activity spikes my creative urge.  Designer peat pots, stitcheries, knitting, and quilting....but the activity I most want to engage in is gardening...the one thing I really can't pursue now.  My indoor garden is blooming...paperwhites planted just before Christmas, and the hyacinth sitting atop water is slowly growing.  The rosemary and oregano I planted last fall are still alive and...get this...thriving... in my living room window.  CBS Sunday Morning had a feature on Tovah Martin's The New Terrarium:  Creating Beautiful Displays for Plants and Nature.  I read (and wrote about) this book last year, but had forgotten about it.  I have the book on my "pick up" list when I go to work this afternoon.  Maybe I can garden now.  Maybe I can grow things in the Wardian case in the corner of my livng room instead of using it for wine storage.  Hmmmm...

I think a terrarium or perhaps a fairy garden in your greenhouse would be adorable!

I'm wondering if you tried it and how it's going???

Plants would be lovely but...wine is good too!

And??? (I know. I'm impossible. I say that I won't bother my blogging buds, but I'm a terrible pest.)
