And so be it my little tree you are a "goose bush" finally.

I had this little caragana during my dreaded mandatory years living in a town with my spine diseases debilitating me.
I had it in a pot and carefully placed it in sheltered area to  be covered with snow in winter, as over few years lost ones that were in pots exposed to Alberta's weather change., this little tough one held on long enough to finally make home in the ground once I got married and moved to my hubby's family farm.
I guess I should also mention I only started shaping it a few years ago, this is year 3.
Finally it is filling in. hoping by next year, it will be done :) this will be my second ever topiary bush. I love it and wish could make all kinds of things :)

Very well done! So much patience involved growing one of those and, I knew caragana was good for something. w.i.n.

Very nice piece of art.  I think it's very well done. 

I have a lot of experience with topiary juniper trimming.   I love to look at them but, I will not be the owner of one, not in this life.    I have one client that has 9 on her property.  The need to be trimmed every few weeks to keep their manicured shape.   

I like yours better.

Thank you Sunfeathers

mgf... I would have thought juniper grow so slow.. I couldn't even manage to keep bought juniper bushes alive, to even give that a chance.

yippee to weed bushes! And thanks :)

A society grows great when old men and women plant trees in whose in shade they know they shall never sit in.
