Now it turns out that Martha Stewart has been all about the round presentation of succulents all along. Her succulent triangle this summer at her Connecticut home turns out to be the exception, and not the rule. Who knew she could be so fickle?

Making beautiful terrariums is a perfect way to bring the outside indoors during the winter months.

So finally we agree, Martha and I. That is a beautiful terrarium, and it sure would spice up your winter months. And I’m not just talking about those of you kind readers who live in Iowa. We’re having winter right now here in California (brrr…) and I like them!

Just be careful watering succulents in a terrarium, since there isn’t proper drainage.
