I fancy myself a bit of a gardener despite my lackluster track record for keeping plants alive. Last year, I bought a jewelers loupe for plant monitoring and wound up getting carried away with microscopic everything.
From top left to bottom right: grass, lavender plant, wood, leaf, pencil tip, and growing strawberry.
The loupe costs less than $10. I recommend getting one for fun if you’re fascinated by magnified things. Or easily entertained in general 🙂
