A few years ago I purchased on eBay a remarkable topiary form in the shape of a smooth fox terrier. It is the creation of a very talented guy, John Hoskins and he lives in San Diego, CA. John creates these forms from a very sturdy chicken wire and shapes them in to every breed of dog imaginable. Check out his website and you can see pictures of all the different breeds done up in wire.
So finally this weekend I got out all the sphagnum moss that I have been collecting. I find that stuff at the thrift store all the time and it's a good thing because it took 4.5 bags to stuff my little doggie. But it looks great.
I have her planted next to my new patio and I put a little creeping jenny down by her rear paws. The creeping jenny will be trained up onto the topiary form so I will be sure to post more pictures later this summer as it progresses. Now go have some fun in your garden this weekend.
