Garden Friend.

Wednesday was a good day for me, how about for you peeps? The weather started off all foggy and damp but it eventually burned off. Maybe it always starts off foggy, I'm just not up early enough to see it. I have tried to capture some pictures of my refurbished scottie dog topiary but he's not any easy subject. Especially when you need to crap-crop around him. Photo-editing can be a girls best friend.
He's modeled after a Mary Engelbriet garden flag of the jumping scottie. I don't even remember how Bret got the idea but he had it made for me a couple of years ago.
Anyway, he was looking ratty and his ivy finally died so we stuffed the sparse parts with fresh moss and added a nice new big pot of ivy and he's as good as new. Hopefully in a few months he will really fill in and be all ivy, but until then I think he looks just swell.
Now if only I could work that magic on the rest of the backyard.
Anyhoo.. off to see Diana this morning and drop off a quilt for Alex. Hope you guys have a super day. xo

Looks cool! However, is he jumping into the pot?? Very athletic.

I just love topiary animals. . . they are so fun & Bret did an amazing job making your Scotty! Way to go Bret! (I too like him with just the moss too!)

Crap Crop .. lol.. so funny, Your scotty dog is looking revived, by the time he is filled in the weather should be warm enough here to put the plants outside.

He's darling. I have yet to fill mine up yet. I got it on Ebay. It's on my list of things to do, though. I'm thinking Scottish moss and creeping fig. He's not gonna be easy to stuff, though.
