Hello fellow gardeners, Some of us may be blessed with natural green thumbs, but others such as myself may not be so lucky. But don’t worry, terrariums are something everyone can make and take care of, I hope this article is helpful and that you all enjoy.
Step one: Find your container. It can be any size and any shape and the more unique the better. If you want to buy your container try places like West Elm or Urban Outfitters, they have some real cool hanging containers. If you want a more vintage feel try things like old bottles or tea cups. I’ve even seen terrariums in lightbulbs. The only stipulation is that your container must be clear and in most cases should have a lid
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.
American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”
Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O
It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.
