Snow Drop Terrariums

snowdrop terrarium galanthus

Snowdrops are coming up everywhere. N and I found a big swath of flowers that were growing behind the base of some laurels and yews and decided that since their showcase was obstructed, we should pick them immediately and enjoy them indoors.

The smallest bud vases we first tried overpowered the sweet little blossoms so we tried placing them in little flower frogs in tiny babyfood jars. I liked this look but thought we need more flowers and some moss, on to a bigger vessel!

We settled with a cookie jar and abandoned the use of the frog, for the stems of the galanthus were strong enough to be nestled among the pea stone. The moss turned out s multi-purpose. Structurally it supported the stems and kept them in place, environmentally, it kept the water from quickly evaporating and visually, it gave the arrangement that terrarium feel I was looking for. The blossoms lasted about 12 days with the flower buds closing each night and opening daily to display its sweet chartreuse markings. To be festive, we placed a porcelain bunny inside to help us welcome spring. ~ Roanne
