When I stopped by Brenda’s Cozy Little House, she was in the middle of a cloche party, hosted by Marty of A Stroll Thru Life. It was simply so much fun that I knew I must join them and their friends.
Some of these girls are amazingly creative, but I’ve discovered almost anything under glass looks good. Why don’t you give it a try?
I didn’t take photos of all of my terrariums, but you can still go back and see those. Here are two more which found their way into my heart and home.
Don’t forget. The Botanical Interests seed and family gardening book contest is over tomorrow night at Midnight CST. If you know anyone who would like to garden with their children or any other children, please send them on over. The more the merrier.
This morning, we had a tiny shower, and for a moment, it felt like spring. I breathed in the fresh air, took more photos and thought of you. Do something nice for yourself today. Okay?

Love your cloches, especially the one with the tulip! Yes, when you put something, anything under glass it makes it look so special.
I adore the thought of something living inside a cloche. I just got my first (and only) bell jar – cloche for Valentines Day and had wanted one for years after seeing Martha Stewart put bell jars in her garden to help her new tender plants along! yay bell jars!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Yes, this cloche party is fun. I love all your cloches and terrariums. Just beautiful. I am not an avid gardener, but I am the primary landscaper at my house and it is a very large yard. It actually got warm enough yesterday to work outside again. Today is even warmer. Oh. spring, just come on…..Kim

I love the cloches. I have one that I should do something with. I really should. But right now I’m taking your advice and doing something nice for myself…

Very pretty! I don’t own a cloche but I do have something similar to house the venus flytrap. Maybe I’ll join in the fun and show off dear old Betty… Love your pics and happy to hear that your weather patterns involve rain vs more ice and snow. :))

What a wonderful idea! The only thing holding me back is I don’t have a cloche! Oh well.
Cindy at Applestone Cottage says
These are just fabulous, I love your blog too! Seeing the flowers under the cloche just made me yearn for spring and my garden so much!!!! Cindy
Love those cloches. I saw them in your previous post and put 2 live plants in mine! I’ll post em soon — I put seeds in an herb pot and put it above the fireplace for warmth. Makes me think of you when I look at it! 😉
These are so WONDERFUL!!!!!! i LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!
Alice, thank you so much. I’m smiling right back atcha!~~Dee
David Perry says
Great shots, Dee, and what a fun idea.
Thanks, Dave. You’re too kind.~~Dee
Love the idea of a cloche party, Dee, and I think you’re right that everything looks a little nicer under glass. 🙂 That unusually shaped terrarium by your front door is fantastic!
Meredith, I think Marty had a grand idea. I loved playing along.~~Dee
Cindy, MCOK says
I must go cloche shopping!
Cindy, I know, aren’t they fun?~~Dee
The cloches look so good used for their intended purposes. Ha Ha Ha, but I love the little gardeners book one too, very sweet! Lezlee
I thought that little book was so sweet. Loved all of yours too.~~Dee
I love them indoors and think they look great in a kitchen garden, too. Now i need to get a kitchen garden! Gail
Me too, Gail. For what they cost, I’m almost afraid to use them outdoors. Breakage ya know.~~Dee
Cloches are beautiful, and so are terrariums. I have a Berry Bowl that has been going for three years now with no help from me, which is the point. I might have to trim the moss soon, though.
Thanks CW. I love that I don’t have to do much. It’s fun.~~Dee
Just lovely ! I love the container by your door , just fabulous !
Thanks Eunice for your sweet comment and for stopping by.~~Dee
Lisa at Greenbow says
I just love those cloches. I a huge one that I put over various items through out the year. I think you find some interesting jars and pots for your projects.
Thanks, Lisa. I love glass.~~Dee
Kylee from Our Little Acre says
Does my newly-planted Wardian case count? I’ve got cloches, too. I’ll get them out & do something with them. Great idea! Thanks for inviting us to the party! 🙂
Kylee, of course, it counts. I want a Wardian case so bad. I am envious and can’t wait to see what you put together.~~Dee
Denise Marie says
love your displays!!
Thank you so much Denise and thank you for stopping by.~~Dee
Oh what fun. You do have some gorgeous cloches and I just love the terreraiums. I have always wanted to try one, you really spur me on. This is so much fun to see and be inspired by. Thank you so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
Marty, thank you for hosting such a fun party.~~Dee
