Over the Christmas holidays I was introduced
to the miniature world of Enchanted Gardens.
I was reminded of being newly married and
being mesmerized with constructing terrariums.
At that time a large antique glass bottle
was my playground filled with small plants,
rocks, and nature's tiny objects.
My older daughter who has always
loved miniatures of any kind; dollhouses, toys,
ephemera, etc. found these at one of our favorite shops
and proceeded to build herself
a tiny paradise in a clay pot.
Me too, me too, I thought,
I'd have some fun in those cold and dreary days of winter.
