Have a Happy Weekend

Hi everyone! The weekend is almost here and I hope you all have some exciting plans. I’ve been doing a little gardening this week and got myself some new cacti. Their my new fixation. First I made a terrarium with cacti, so while I was at it I thought why not introduce more cacti here and there, like splashes of different greens, shapes and sizes. Anyway, this is the reason I picked this image of a beautiful cactus to feature. I love its pink background wall and lately, I feel that I need a little more pink in my life.

Anyhow, now that I got my plants sorted out it’s time to share with you some fun links I’ve selected from around the web. But first, an announcement for any of you that might be in Washington D.C. and wish to have a private photography showing. The Athens House of Photography, an art photography gallery and consulting agency with photo prints of distinguished photographers including John Demos, Emmanuel Coupe and Nicolas Lotsos, is hosting the showing from Friday, September 29th to Sunday, October 1st. Don’t miss it!

By the way, this is a photo of my first terrarium I made yesterday. Cacti are not easy to handle, yet I couldn’t resist making it. I will be adding a few pebbles and perhaps some moss. Don’t they look lovely? I was so proud of it that I continued on with planting two more pots with cacti. What do you think of them? It all took me 30 minutes max to make and it cost me a total of €9,00 for the cacti plus another €4,00 for the blue ceramic planter. I already had the rest. Not bad, right?
