Topiary Trees

September 12, 2015

11:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Family Discovery Gallery

Since Roman times, the practice of creating shapes by clipping leaves & twigs from a plant to make a topiary have been popular in gardens both grand and simple. Often the shape created is round but it might also be cone-shaped, square, a twisted line or even take on the shape of an animal. Use your imagination today to make a pretend topiary with papers and glue. You might stick with shades of green, but then, maybe your topiary will be splashed with colors!

This program is generously sponsored by Evergreen Retirement Community.
