The other day I realised that glass on a window looks rather lovely. When I cleaned out my pantry I decided these little jars that were housing spices were not very practical. So I lined them up along a window sill and put some green bits in them. Pretty.
Then I re-potted all the carnivorous plants I have on my kitchen windowsill into bowls and vases and jars. And I've been admiring them while I do the dishes ever since. They are the perfect plants for these sorts of terrariums because they like boggy conditions. I've had these beautiful old coloured glass fishing floats hanging in the window for a while but I decided that you can never have too much bling. So I relocated a couple of crystals and some stained glass stars and it all looks rather lovely to my eye. Pity about the view of the empty goat block and the neighbour's side wall and that rotten moth vine on the fence that I still haven't pulled out. Oh. And of course the window sill that still hasn't been painted properly. But fortunately my eye at the moment is focusing on the sparkles and colour. I'll eventually get round to the other stuff.
