Topiaries are lots of fun.  You add some ivy, some flowering plants, a little reindeer moss in a wire form and voila, you've got a beautifully 'dressed' topiary.  Topiaries date from Roman times.  This one is in the form of an old fashioned baby carriage.  It's great because the flowers won't be dead in three days and it is quite decorative.

If you have  your topiary form, your reindeer moss, and your plants, then let's begin.  This will be fun.   For more on topiaries see:  http://www.floristinyou.com/topiaries
