Found: Cloches

Cloches are back at TJMaxx. Get there quick.
Above, $20 each. Made in China, the glass is thin. Polish cloches are much thicker. Mexican cloches are the thickest I've discovered.
I do not own a French antique cloche. I own 25-30 cloches, myriad sizes & makers.
With cats it's not easy having floral arrangements in the house. Into the terrarium, above, they go.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

Cloches are used to protect tender seedlings from frost. TJMaxx is next to my post office, they did not pay me for this post.

You may delete this after it's read, but please know that it ought to be "cloches", plural. The way you have it spelled indicates possession.
