She just loves the sound;
She could never have nearly enough
Of their whimsy all around.
Every shrub she passes by
She eyes with a hand on her sheers;
Would that one make the perfect bunny of green
or the first in a grand row of spheres?
Just when she thinks she may have just enough,
She carts home one or two more;
And although she spends time at glamorous boutiques,
She's her happiest at the topiary store.
COULD SHE BE YOU?
What better way to send ourselves into the weekend
than with thoughts of stepping into a greenhouse
filled with topiaries?
One of my favorite things to do in the summer
visit greenhouses filled with sun
and the sound of trickling water from a fountain
and the scent of green and flowers all around.
Normally a post like this would have been accompanied
by a topiary girl illustration, but you know since I myself
am a Topiary Girl that you will see one of those
sometime in the future.
As you know, this has been
one of those very busy weeks
filled with illustration deadlines
and little time for anything else ...
but I'll be able to share those illustrations too
with you later!
Have a glorious weekend
filled with thoughts of spring!
Until Monday, darlings...
