There has been a small discussion in the Mid-Atlantic Garden Objects thread about Topiary dog frames. I have always found topiary to be very fascinating and since we just came back from a visit of the Ladew Gardens one of the Most Outstanding Topiary Gardens in America. I thought I would share a few pics and start a discussion on Topiary Gardening. I'm going to post some of the pics I have taken and put in a few links that I think you will enjoy. Please add comments, post your own pics. Maybe some of you are thinking about starting a Topiary of your own and maybe you will be after reading this thread.
Harvey Ladew was an avid Fox Hunter and this Hunt scene is probably the most recognized Topiary of the Ladew Gardens. There are two riders one going over the jump, five dogs and the fox. We were told that things are a bit shaggy this time of year as you must let the Topiary have a growing period or else they will die.
