Donna...I just discovered your blog through "Artful Blogging" mag. First of all, let me congratulate you on being one of the featured blogs in the magazine! Second, I LOVE YOUR BLOG! I LOVE YOUR ARTWORK! I LOVE YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR! and I LOVE JOHNNY TOO......CAN WE SHARE! and oh yes... I LOVE YOUR GORGEOUS GARDEN! I look forward to coming back often.


Oh I wanted to ask if it would be possible to link to your page?? I have your link on mine I hope thats ok??..My url is different than my blog name.. A Whimsy Wish


Well, you could always hook them together at the top when they get a little taller, then youd have a evergreen topiary trellis!


Like all the topiaries in the background! You have great taste and a green thumb!!!


Looks great to me. Your back yard is beautimous! To including mini trees! There are lots of lil' xmas trees all about around here! We have some out in front too!
Have a happy night!


What would life be without a garden! I spend a lot of time in mine though it´s far from the beautiful one you have!

Hello Donna,
Your garden looks so lovely. I love your evergreen trees. They can be whatever season you like...Where's that little rascally rabbit?

So pretty and so much talent! Bravo! xo Roberta

Wow, looks like you should charge admission for people to view your lovely space! The evergreens don't spell christmas to me at all. They are very regal looking manicured so perfectly!

I like the idea of the clematis on the trellis or possibly trumpet vine?

I have a little gnome on my blog that would love to come live in your beautiful garden. :0)



Donna, I love it!


my husband has a point too, it's on his...oh, never mind...your garden has made my garden very jealous...i hope you and your topiaries are quite happy with yourselves...it looks like eden over there...

ps: is there a corn~shucker owning "type" and if so...what is it, pray tell...

I love all your topiaries! I have a girlfriend who has the same problem as you with lots of shade in her yard and she did a little knot garden around the topiaries really tiny and it looks awesome.

Where's the Roaming Gnome?
Inquiring minds want to know...


I think the lawn and garden publications are going to come calling too! Flat out GORGEOUS Donna! Happy Day!

Topiary tends to remind one of Edward Scissor Hands. Hmmm...

Positively beautiful, Donna!!!


Lisa Oceandreamer

I now have a severe case of back garden envy!!!!!!!! OH yes, you were talking about the trees huh?

Nancy ~ Fete et Fleur

So very pretty Donna! I love how you decorated them! ;~)


Miss Maddie's

Speaking of gorgeous where's that gardener of yours? I expected to see him when you mentioned the garden!
Oh well maybe next time.
xo Susan

Now the question is; what's wrong with a Christmas tree farm?
No kidding your garden is sooo nice!


Oh my gosh is that your home or Filoli ??? Now I want to move in even more xoxoxo Clarice

Boxwood Cottage

It looks beautiful Donna and all the greens and whites give your garden a wide and parc like impression. I just wonder why you had no luck with flowers there. Is it a more shady space? Have you ever tried Clematis at the fence/trellis?
Best wishes for beautiful garden days sends you Carol xox


I love it, It looks like you live in England. Your yard is amazing!!!


I wish my garden looked like yours. We have a never ending struggle with grass everywhere! Love you site! Tan


It doesn't look like a Christmas tree farm - just festive for both summer and winter!
P.S. If your hubby would rather - you can gladly transport everything to my yard! :)


Your garden is just so Gorgeous! I love the two twirled topiaries that can be seen in back! And I think the row of evergreens look very regal and stately!
