Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Butterfly Topiary (Busch Gardens, Tampa, Florida)

Butterfly Topiary
December 16, 2010

Bush Gardens has many fine examples of large topiaries.  All of them are quite impressive to say the least.  It is amazing how the arborist uses a combination of various plants to create the desired effect in the finished topiary.  This huge butterfly topiary was near the pond with all of the California flamingoes and tucked back far enough to prevent getting closer to.  Isn't is simply gorgeous?

Happy Gardening!
