My new Wabi-maris

Just made them today, I'm quite proud.

I made the little balls out of potting soil and some native sandy soil, and covered it with terrestrial moss, all of wich was scraped offsome bricks in my back yard. Everything but the grass and the flowering plant on the left was already growing in the moss.
They're kinna frankensteiny at the moment but hopefully they'll grow together eventually (read: WONT DIE)

The dishes are terracotta painted off white and coated. they're about 3" across at the most.

Also, if you don't get the title joke, check my sig, and then go play This game

Love 'em! Even the place you've chosen to put them -- in front of a window with leaves changing color with whatever season we're in right now -- is beautiful.
I'd love to do something like this myself. So keep us updated so as to teach us, kay?
