A return to the winter palace.
A week or so ago I placed my topiary outside due to our early spring. This weekend it's just too cold for them to be outdoors, and tonight we are expecting snow, so I brought the girls indoors. They are back in their winter garden - grow lights and Mylar surround them, as shown here - in the winter, Mylar and tin foil cover the base, along with the pots for optimum light reflection. I got the idea from pot growers. No - I neither grow pot or use it.
But since you brought it up: Would it still be a sin to smoke it if it was legal? I can never get a straight answer from anyone. Drinking is legal and it is not a sin to drink. Pain killers are legal and it is not a sin to use those as prescribed. I'm not sure I'd use it even if it was legal however - I'm just asking.
Anyway - now that the trees are indoors, I see I need to prune a bit more to get the shape just right. They have 3 siblings remaining outdoors - they happen to be more cold hardy - they being boxwood topiary.
