Another robotic gardening tool, Ellsworth Kelly, an iPhone docking station planter, and more in today’ Links We Love!

-Tired of the same old ceramic pots and planters? Try these 100% recycled felt plant pods. They are meant for plants that fit into 2-inch pods and come with their own dropper for watering.  [LA Times]

-Honda Motor Co. has created an automatic lawn-mowing robot. The Miimo, said to be released in 2013 only in Europe, comes in two sizes, to mow either up to a 3,000 sq ft or 5,000 sq ft lawn. It also recharges itself and has an excellent batter monitor, to return to its dock whenever it’s feeling low. [news10]

 -Cary Pereyra creates bouquets with herbs (pictured) that are garnered towards healing. She is a self-taught herb florist that believes in the medicinal properties of certain plants. You can find her work at her new studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. [Gardenista]

 -The Bloombox is a hollow glazed ceramic docking station for your iPod or iPhone. The hollowness allows for a 30% increase in your device’s sound, and arguably better sound quality. It also creates a functioning environment for small plants. Smart and stylish! [PSFK]

-Ellsworth Kelly has accumulated over six decades worth of art ranging from abstract painting to figurative drawing. However, there has never been a museum exhibition solely dedicated to his beautiful plant drawings, until now. On display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until September 3, the show consists of about eighty drawings dating back to 1948! [Met]
