Around Los Angeles, Hollywood and Los Feliz

We have had such a great winter this year, and we have been enjoying it very much.  Here are a few pictures I took in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Los Feliz. I think the city is very interesting.

Have You Ever Made a Terrarium?

Back in the 1970s I used to make terrariums, and I have been wanting to make one for a while now.  Of course the selections of terrarium bottles back then was great.  I settled for a large canister/cookie jar.  I admit it was much easier to plant than one of the skinny neck ones I used to make.  Now I will have to work on getting the climate control correct so that it can maintain itself.
