Normally I'm not much for terrariums because I don't like glass separating me from the plants, but this is just straight beautiful! Perfect to have succulents in it too because they need water so infrequently, the amount of reaching in to fuss with them is really minimized to once or twice a month.
Fish tower - What child would not love this? A large jar is filled in pond, then raised upsidedown and secured on a stand in the pond. Lip of jar is just below surface. Fish come swim in the tower. Photo by calamity_j on Gardenweb.com
