Mickey Mouse Topiary Update - September 2021
The last time I posted an update on our Mickey Mouse (standing) topiary was back in late July of this Summer. I had just recently moved it outside to our back patio and the Creeping Fig Vine that I had planted on it was doing well and growing to cover part of the frame. We brought home the frame from this Spring's Epcot Flower and Garden Festival and I bought the balance of the supplies online. That look back in July was at about the 3 month mark.
Today, marks the five month mark since stuffing, wiring and planting the topiary. And we're seeing quite a bit more coverage with the Creeping Fig Vine seeming to have established itself and would around the front and back of the frame. Here, below, is the front of the Mickey Mouse topiary after about 150 days. The vine - planted in the 'heart' has covered a lot of his belly, some of his face and some of one of his ears.
