Now for something completely outside my normal programming... a quick tour of an Ivy topiary factory! Within the sprawling nursery complex in which I reside also exists a topiary nursery. Everything is created by hand, to include the metal frames, as a result every item is unique. At first sight I felt I'd been transported back in time 150 yrs; there is a definite Dickensian feel happening. I'm not going to give away any of the topiary creation secret sauce today - just some fun looking creations.
|Cats successfully herded
|Christmas is just around the corner
|What good boys. Treats are deserved.
|Insert your own caged bird witticism
|More good dogs
|Lots of baskets to be had as well
|Looks like monkey business
Had enough yet? Tours can be arranged.
Lastly I spotted this...
I'm sure there is a story here. Most likely detritus of previous nursery people.
|I wonder who these guys are?
Until next time!
