Bottle Garden

Miniature gardens are really, really cute!
Robot in the garden
Terrariums are all the rage these days, so I decided to make my own using an old milk bottle I found years ago at a cheap thrift store. Ever the frugal person, I simply went outside and picked cute, little plants from my front yard: a tiny succulent, and even tinier weeds. 
Dried lavender, small rocks and a robot make me feel like this is a real life little world! I love to look at it!
The bottom of the bottle is lined with gravel, then damp soil then plants. I didn't have any activated charcoal around (oops!) so I hope things don't get too moist and smelly. Only time will tell, I suppose.
