Looking for a Unique Gift


I don't have a green thumb and I don't like to garden. But I receive daily emails from wordsmith.org - the magic of words, language and quotes. I don't subscribe to many listservs but I do enjoy this one - sometimes I know the words like topiary but most times I don't. Yesterday's word topiary got me thinking if I liked gardening I would not only have a huge vegetable garden but some sort of topiary menagerie of animals. The menagerie would include a herd of horses, a giraffe, elephants - so many critters that word would spread through the Southwest - people would want to come visit from miles around and the media would call often and want to do stories about my topiary! But no topiary for OneCowgirl!

That's really cute. Gardening is not my best skill either. If I had that horse it would be better off without the greenery, after a few weeks it would be brown anyway after the plants died.

We have ponies, who has time to garden?

I love topiary- I only have one though- an elephant that sits on its rear. I had to put in a new plant this summer- so it's a little sparse. I love the pony on your blog. My friend actually has two life sized horses on her place.I covet them!
