Last year, as I was working on my Mosaic Birdbath, I paused to look across my yard and there he was! That nuisance I had been trying to get rid of for years! There he was, flaunting himself at me, again! Ok, I had had it. I decide to have a come to Jesus meeting with him. It dawned on me, as I looked across my yard, that he would make a great topiary. He wouldn’t leave. Fine. He could stay, but on my terms. I would have the final word in what we call at my house… the Taming of the Shrub!
