Revisiting a Backyard Metal Frame Topiary - The Block I
As I often do during the deep part of Winter, my brain starts to think about the garden and the projects that I'd like to take on this season. I've done a couple of years of to-do lists and those have been good ways of forcing me to focus. In each of those years (2019 and 2020), I included trying a metal-frame topiary to the list. And in both of those years, I never check the idea off my list.
But, that hasn't stopped me from thinking about how to pull one off. And, as I was tool'ing around the Web recently, I came across this Etsy store that sells all sorts of topiary frames. They're all really great. Go have a look at this Pikachu one. Or this Mickey Mouse head. They also sell a full-body Mickey Mouse which looks really great. It is $300, so maybe a little rich for a first-timer like me.
But, there also was one that caught my attention. It is the one featuring Auburn University's A/U logo. Here's a screenshot of the listing below. (Again...this (below) is NOT my photo. You can buy this topiary from the seller here on Etsy.)

Now, you guys know I don't care much about Auburn University. But, seeing the way this seller created the letters in three-dimensional form made me think about something that I could do in our yard. You know what I'm thinking...the Block I.
