A Triple Header!!!


My weekend was busy.
It was all bunnies,
BBQing and Blue.

This sweet little bunny
wasn't always this way.
I had her for several years
and she was starting to show some wear.

I knew that she needed to be re-stuffed.
I was just reluctant to do it.
I've never re-stuffed a topiary before.

After removing all of the old moss.
I discovered it was a bigger project than I expected.
(Notice the package is blue.)

The moss was not only stuffed in the frame,
but formed around the frame.
Yikes! This meant that I had to be creative!

But so far-so good, I think her head turned out okay.
I'll spare you the details of the rest of her body -
and
Ta Da
Here She Is!

Inbetween the Bunny Project,
I BBq'd some chicken
and veggies.

Jacob's Daisies are B*L*O*O*M*I*N*G!

The Herbs are lOOkin' gOOd!

Some of my Babies are starting to Bloom!

Here's this week's Grow sign.
We have blooms this week!

Notice my pretty Blue Flowers!

The Lanium is Blooming, too!

Miles wants you visit
for Share a Garden Sunday,

for Met Monday Projects,
&
for other creative Blue ideas!

Robyn! This is sooooo cool! I bought a dog for a friend of mine that she stuffed with the spaghnum moss, and now she has some sort of fern growing in it. It's so cool, I want a little Boston Terrier! LOL! Though - I have seen monkey's too, that Rabbit is sooooo cool! Now you have me re-thinking, adding rabbit to the list! LOL! :) Thanks for participating in Share a Garden Sunday!

You have been working really hard. I love the bunny. That must have been a lot of work. Have a great day.

Knitty said...

Miles must be doing a good job as your bunny looks very good and safe from the breathing variety of bunnies!

srp said...

Your garden does look wonderful... what a great topiary and you did a fabulous job too. I keep trying to till up a small space for some iris out near the preserve but the rain and weather won't cooperate.

Good job on the Bunny Re-Do Ms. Robyn! Your yard sure is looking good! And gotta love the sweet Miles...HOW CUTE! :)

Sue said...

Wowie, you took on some project, Robyn! It came out great, even if you won't show up that little guy's body! The garden is looking good... Do you have to keep it moist at all? I have some inside topiaries that I don't spritz and they turned a little brownish yellow.

Great Job on the bunny! Miles is beautiful! Schnauzer???

How fun! Great job re-rabbiting! I think Miles is a wonderful patrol dog - all of the best ones keep close to the ground so they can see the grass move! ;-)

Happy Blue Monday!
