Day 137 – Topiary

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Thirty Seven

Art Apple - Day One Hundred Thirty Seven

I love to garden.

It amazes me to see something come to life from a seed or a dormant bunch of twigs. For me it’s a way to paint with living things and I’ve always been very interested in trying my hand at topiary. Country Living had an article last year or maybe two years ago that showed how to create a simple rooster. So, I bought a couple boxwoods thinking I’d just follow the directions and viola! Yeah, right – they looked horrible and I found out that boxwoods don’t like my super dry climate or the 6200 ft. elevation. Some day I need to live where things actually want to grow! ¬†And my next attempt will be an apple :)

I had my Remicade infusion today so my thoughts aren’t forming well. I think I just need to call it a night for today since the medication packs a big punch and makes me so tired for a day or two.

Until tomorrow.
