A Real Topiary and a Fun Giveaway

I have always loved real topiaries, but have never had one.  Recently I was at a nursery and found this beauty.  It was a little wild looking, but exactly what I was looking for.  The woman there said not to cut it, but to push the wild strays back into the center.  She also said to keep it moist or the leaves would start falling off fast!



I had it on my kitchen island and loved it, but then so did the cat...  (ugh)  After finding it tipped over a couple of times, I knew I had to find a better place for it.

We are having our wood floors refinished and needed to move EVERYTHING out of the living room, kitchen, entry and hall.  What a job!  One good part about moving everything is that I found a great place for the topiary.  It should be safe from being knocked over and I'm not as grossed out by the cat climbing up on this counter....

I love the delicate little leaves.

  1. Pam that's such a pretty one! Love the delicate looking leaving and the pretty wire pot. I only see ivy ones around here. I'd say you found the perfect spot for it!

  2. I want one! That is so pretty! I like the wildness of it too. How exciting to have your floors refinished! Hope we get to see :-)

  3. The topiary is beautiful, Pam! I like the new location better, too! Hope your floors are finished soon!!!

  4. yes..my cat would love it too! I love them but never see any at the nurseries?

  5. I actually like it in your powder room and the steamy shower should help give it some moisture. Beautiful:)

  6. Pam,

    Super idea to place your pretty topiary in the bathroom. It will stay nice and misted with the shower.


  7. That's a real pretty plant. I will get one too.
