    i just made this whiskey barrel bog garden with my dad. I havent planted it yet because we ran out of sand so we need to go get some more to make the soil level higher.





    oh and im thinking it would be cool to put some aquatic utrics in the water bucket

    Wow. Neat. I like it. Plenty of space but it doesn't take up much room. What is the media type?

    I can't wait to see it planted!

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
