Cloud pruning

 I have never been able to master the art of topiary.   So this year I have tried my hand at cloud pruning.
 I must say I am pleased with the results.    I have enjoyed sculpting the trees into clouds.
I have plans for bringing a lot more of this art work into the garden.    What do you think?

    1. what a shame. If you do not keep on top of them they lose their form. Made me smile though Simon.

    1. This is their first year Lisa. I was a little nervous cutting into my little pines initially and panicked a bit. Overall it has turned out well. I think they may look better as time passes.

      Have a good week.

  4. Pruning, shaping is always more difficult than it looks, and it was never my strong point!

    I think your trees look good though Cheryl, definitely a piece of garden and art that works well.

    All the best Jan

    PS Seeing your reply to me in your last post - have you worn your new anniversary coat yet?
