~Whimsical Topiaries for the Garden and Simple & Sweet Fridays #236~

I love topiaries in our garden.
Creating something whimsical makes me smile!
I wanted to share with you some photos.
Styling with some succulents!!
A cute hen with her chicks (hen and chick succulents)!
That's the name of the plant!
Filling a wire frame with green moss is all you need to create a topiary!
You can buy the green moss at any nursery.
A tree topiary with little succulents.
A whimsical rabbit topiary!
 I trimmed the boxwoods into the shapes of birds.
 I found this trim at Michael's Craft Store.
I measured different sizes for the bird's crowns.
 I found this foil at Michael's too!
 It was sold in sheets.
I cut a crown with shear cutters and used round head fasteners to hold the crown together.
I think the bird's turned out so cute!
Especially their crowns!
I glued on pearls and added some wire leaves to the crowns.
I used E-6000 glue.

The birds needed a little bling around their necks.

The writing on the pot means, 
Pottery of the Madeleine Anduze.
It was made in Anduze, France. 
I love the color blue of the pot.

Happy Gardening this Fall!!
