I've been visiting a few of the surrounding horticultural societies to help celebrate the festive season. Most of them are pot luck dinner meetings and rarely do you see the same dish duplicated and .......such decadent desserts.
One society had a local florist as their guest and she created a Christmas topiary that you can see here, from scratch. It is simple to make and she had it done in no time with a home made form, Christmas tree clippings, wire, ribbon and a butterfly.
The base was made from a pot filled with sand and moss on top to cover it and then a few bows added.
