You can also make wreaths or similar hanging balls using cacti and succulents. They are lovely.

I saw the coolest thing the other day. A friend of mine were visiting another friend... she has this huge greenhouse that is actually attached to the front of her house. It's the size of my living room and dinning room combined. She had patio furniture even in it... so we were sitting in her greenhouse talking.

I noticed something I had never seen and thought it was the most creative things. She lives out in the boonies... so there are woodlands all around her. She had gotten some large branches from pine trees that had fallen and aged to the point where there was no bark left on them. And on these branches she had orchids just sitting on the branches all around on this 7' branch that had other branches sticking out. It was too cool!! Then I remembered that orchids are mostly air plants any how... so it made sense. It was remarkably lovely.

Does your area have those craft fair type things that have a booth where someone makes the little glass figures or the big glass vases and bowls?
No but we have a guy who blows glass Christmas ornaments.

I'd like to see a photo of that but you probably didn't have your camera with you.

That sounds really pretty. I envy the huge greenhouse. I've always dreamed of a greenhouse with a pond & waterfall in the middle, with trees & orchids growing ... frogs & lizards roaming freely thru it. I'd probably move into it.

Tempting. Very tempting.

I like the hanging root vases. I'm still looking for a hanging aquarium.

I found these http://www.thewallaquarium.com/wall-...fish-bowls.php I don't want them but they are closer to hanging aquatic gardens.
