European Topiaries And USA Topiaries

Are you like I am and suddenly have seen topiaries everywhere you have been lately? Last fall, Bob, our friends, and I toured for 3 weeks in a Skoda station wagon visiting 4 countries Germany was first then Austria! By the time we made it to Vienna, I was in love with the European street decor. Everywhere we went there were lovely faux boxwood topiaries. I especially liked the ones that were a single sphere shape.
It was so hard for me to believe, that they were not live boxwoods. I was going along touching them…..don’t take a sip of coffee now…please wait…when I grabbed a boxwood and it was not plastic!!! Aren’t you glad, that I warned you, so that you didn’t splatter yourself and your monitor? There I stood in Vienna with torn off leaves in my hand. I wondered if the topiary police were watching!
Notice the 3 spheres and the ivy topiaries side by side, they’re from Old Time Pottery. Post which one you think I bought? Or do you think I bought both?
The large spheres in the shopping cart are from Trees ‘N Trends….they will soon be replacing our fading boston ferns on our front porch. They are gorgeous! I love ferns so much, that I hate to see them go.
Bet you noticed that blue looking photo…the fog blew through about the time I snapped it. I just wanted y’all to see and then imagine how harsh the entrance to our garage would be without the bench and the faux boxwood. Thanks for stopping by.
