Very Mary Berry!
I was going to say that makes a great cupcake, until I saw the handle & the spout! Clever!
I admired the topiarist’s (?) handiwork too
What a hoot. Love it.
Is it English boxwood?
I think it is box, if that’s what you mean by English boxwood, Tony
Buxus sempervirens is what we know as English boxwood, even though it is from other parts of Europe. Buxus microphylla is the Japanese boxwood that is more common here, especially modern cultivars.
Ah, I see – and out of interest I googled and learned that the ‘boxwood’ that was used in furniture and ‘treen’ can be the ordinary B sempervirens, whereas I always assumed it was a more tropical tree
What a great idea! Is it yours Cathy? I should love to trim one of my box shrubs into a shape… that has got me thinking! 😉
Gosh, not mine, Cathy, I don’t think I would have the artistic skill to do anything as neat as that 😀 It was at Barnsdale
Very cute! And probably a good deal of work!
Cathy a beautiful teapot! Greetings from Margarita
