What is more whimsical, and eccentric, and English (?) , than gardens containing topiary?

So, imagine my delight on unwrapping my birthday surprise to find...... a wire form for creating a topiary chicken in the garden!!

Now, I know, that it is only the unusual man who would want such a thing, but I am delighted to say that I live with a woman who recognises that I am such a man - and celebrates it!

So here, she sits, waiting to be filled. I am hoping to buy a standard box bush and to hen shape it over this season.


And won't small, passing children be delighted.
The small child in me certainly will!
