Fake flowers?

Indeed.

I've got one. Had for years. But, whatever I put in it died.

Got some plastic/fibre plants in it, now.

Looks great!  :)

the good thing with the bottle is that it can live where ever you want.
you might have to bring it indoors in the winter. And bear in mind the sun when you position it.
Some plants would prefer shadier conditions.

Thanks, Lisa. That's great.
The place in garden, where I took the picture, is under a tree, always in the shadow.
And until autumn I should find a nice place inside the house.

I would love to become a professional whistler. I'm pretty amazing at it now, but I wanna get, like, even better... and make my living out of it.

Yes, it looks cool.

But it isn't really cool, because there is mildew on the Irish moss.  :(

Mildew should drop away as the humidity drops, then it's time to seal it.
