Have you ever watched Edward Scissorhands? Someday I want to create a fantastical topiary sculpture in my yard like in the film, but I need a lot of practice first. This week I pruned two Dwarf Alberta Spruces into topiaries. Probably not the best plant choice for topiaries since they’re prickly, but I got them for 75% off after Christmas for around $7.00 each. Good for experimenting. I used regular hand pruners and gloves, but my hand hurt afterward. I probably should invest in larger, pointy shears. Any recommendations?
I totally get the fascination with topiary. I've not done any yet, but my kids sent me a bonsai kit for my birthday, so it's def on my radar. I may not live long enough to see it through, but it's a process. Yes on Scrivener for organizing. And I'm exploring the new Freeform app for that as well. It has sticky notes!
Swoon worthy! That’s awesome. I resonate with so much of this. Thanks for sharing.
