New Year's Resolutions


It has come to the attention of the Topiary Cow that once again, the year has passed with far too little dedication to the ancient Art of Topiary.

Even worse, the worthy cause of Topiary World Domination has stalled, sidelined by a lack of sufficiently sharp shears and the regrettable, yet inevitable, rise of Powered Hedge Clippers.

Imposing forms--vast embroidered parterre designs; fanciful creatures; and classic lollipops, spirals, and obelisks must speedily be returned to Garden Prominence, whether it manifest as single creatures or complex displays of abstract motifs.

A fresh approach, determination, enthusiasm and dedication to leafy greens are called for!

Too much talk about the global economy puts plant life in the background. Happy New Year to you and may your days of 2009 be very fanciful and full of serious trimmings.

I hope there will be bushes of sufficient thickness for this art form to flourish, Ms Cow.

But being green is all the rage now!
