A portion of my energy went into this today...I re-planted my bottle garden. The palm and African violet which were its previous inhabitants had become overgrown, and the poor fern died. So here I have replaced them with a type of bird's nest fern, a much smaller variety of African violet, and a really beautiful variety of club moss with deep green upper foliage and deep red underneath. I have a little glass plate to put on the top to help keep the moisture in. It's always a balancing act with the moisture when you first set them up. I will be removing/replacing the plate multiple times over the next week or so.
I also received a small aquarium from my friend L today, and I got it up and running. I haven't kept fish in over five years, and I am really excited to have an aquarium again. It came with a few live plants and a wee cherry shrimp. I intend to plant more, and next weekend I will add fish. I would really like a honey gourami if I can find one, but I may just go with some neon tetras.
And now I am exhausted! I wish it were not Monday tomorrow.
