This Ienami Bonkei Planter was created by Metaphys. They are tiny — just 10 cm! And they’re made of stone powder. By placing plants in the planter, and then combining several planters, you can create a scenic miniature town on your desktop. So cool! So cute!

Anyone else have a serious thing for miniatures? (The tiny cow and horse are too much.)

Love these! They remind me of a water-treatment-plant-turned-water-garden I visited in Seoul a few years ago. The best sort of “recycling” I’ve seen.

Do you know what’s planted in the pots above?

That sounds amazing, Ginger. Do you have a link? I’ve got to know more about that water treatment garden. I don’t know what’s planted but it’s so bright it looks almost fake. It’s beautiful.

It looks similar to Irish moss. Our nursery has several varieties of moss, and my children just planted terraiums with this moss last week. Irish moss makes tiny white flowers, which is ever more fun. I think my children want to include fairies with theirs, but the horse is hilarious. I would love several tiny sheep!
