boletus bicolor mushroom terrarium finished

 That little mushroom I showed you in yesterday's post has been completed.  It was inspired by the bicolor bolete (as clever Karen noticed yesterday), a lovely and edible mushroom.  I took a little liberty with the hue (hey, that's an artist's prerogative).

I added a slimy little friend, who I adore.  I had so much fun making him that I actually giggled while needling him into place.

I also added some pebbles and sporophytes in the moss, a signature touch for me.

I set this one into a piece of chokecherry from our woods.
You can see I'm gradually working a little larger.  Just wait until you see the next piece I'm working on.  It involves these:


This one will take me a little while to finish but hopefully I'll have a good start on it by this weekend.  I can't wait to show you when it's done.

Enjoy your day, everyone.

've suddenly developed a newfound appreciation for snails--I giggled just now! But I gasped when I saw the aubergine mushrooms. They are truly spectacular. Geez. :D
