These are my first tries at topiary, girls, all three are gold crest conifers, I would say they're about 5 years old Sandra, I've two box plants I'm hoping will shape up next spring too. yes they come into their own in winter.

Beautiful Blue Spruce Karen and you have the room now, I took mine out as it didn't grow well in my walled garden.
That's the hydrangea in the blue pot you sent me Karen, it's done really well this year, I shall plant it in the garden in the spring, give it more room....:))

Nice setting for your plants. They are so well suited in size to their space. Loved looking at the pic.

Thanks Posy, this is the first garden I've had where there isn't a vista, so I try and create detail in the space there is. Hope it's not too cold yet where you are......

Thanks very much everyone! Oh Amy, you flatterer....carry on...lol!

In should like to try my hand at some pyramids, maybe a project for next year...methinks. And, at some point some pavers or brick tiles over the concrete.....

Looking really good Janey. Love the topiary. I have one pointed and one round box tree. Did them from small plants.

spectacular...I think Topiary is such fun to do and to look at. Yours look so nice in a pair. I know threes, but this is something so elegant about a pair. Nice work,

Thanks Linda and Posy, I've been over with my girls to a beautiful Tudor Manor today where the old box topiary in shapes of mushrooms, pyramids and unicorns looks spectacular!
