Today's little pleasure includes a fun way to build your own garden treasure. We introduce to you....
This sets features topiary parts and allows you to pick the foliage and the pot to create your own "scenes" in such a classic way! It's another elegantly drawn set from Marcella Hawley.
With yesterday's little lesson on Nasturtiums, I thought I'd give you a little research on these garden beauties. Did you know the Latin word for a landscape gardener is topiarus from which the word topiary is derived? This type of gardening has been practiced for at least 2,000 years and was used in the gardens of the wealthy from early Roman times through the 18th Century. It had a short period of being out-of-style and was then revived during the Victorian era. Now, we have some elegant topiaries that are just as pretty -- and they don't even need to be watered! ;-)
Want to win this set? Simply leave us a comment telling us your favorite summertime treat! If you have a recipe you feel inclined to share -- that's ok too! Delicious food and stamping - is there really anything better?
