Tabletop Garden – In the Wonderland

Container Moss Garden - In the Wonderland Container Moss Garden - In the Wonderland

This moss garden – In the Wonderland – has bought me so much joy.  From collecting moss in public park to choosing the right garden container, from making sand art in between the soil mix to cutting up my bracelet, necklaces and earrings, it has been an unexpectedly fun, dare-to-try experience.  While I love my moss garden, it is definitely the process that I enjoyed the most.

Tabletop Garden – A Shot of Succulent Please!

Tabletop Container Garden - A Shot of Succulent Please!Don’t these little shots of succulents look cute?  We can either put a few of them together on a tabletop or scatter them around in the house, either way, will add a slice of nature and some refreshing colors to our homes and offices.

Tabletop Container Garden - A Shot of Succulent Please!Actually my idea of making this set of four succulent gardens all started with a succulent that I bought in CitySuper 1.5 years ago .  As time passed by, the white little rocks in the container began to turn greenish and look dirty (as shown in the photo on the right).  Continue reading Tabletop Garden – A Shot of Succulent Please!

Tabletop Garden – Black N Matching

Tabletop Container Garden - Black N Matching
This tabletop container garden is my gift to my mom for Mother’s Day this year. When I was designing this garden, I wanted it to be an easy-to-maintain garden that requires little time and attention from my busy mom. I wanted the garden to be something cool and fun, while the plants in the garden must be hardy enough to survive on little attention. I don’t want to get my mom discouraged because she thinks she kills the plants in the garden after a few weeks.

Tabletop Garden – Cactus Garden v2

Tabletop Garden - Cactus Garden v2As I said earlier, I originally planned to cover my tabletop garden – Cactus Garden with a layer of off-white gravels.  But since I couldn’t find any on hand, I used some big black stones instead.  While the tabletop garden looked pretty cool with the black stones, the picture of the garden covered with small gravels had always been in my mind.
