    Paula, that's fabulous. It does seem to have an air of serenity about it. Love the lotus position too!

    He certainly looks contentimage

    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Love it And I see you have got a cloud tree beside it, I'm just in the process of greating  one of thease. I think patience is what is needed, did you buy the Buddha and cloud tree or did you construct them from the begining ?

    Very nice!

    Based in Sussex, I garden to encourage as many birds to my garden as possible.

    Very impressed and inspired. I have a small yew which I'm thinking of topiarising (is that a word?) so looking for inspiration. How long did he take to do and did you use a frame?

    See original post

     Hi ChrissieB, I bought a cone shape buxus and grew it for about three years to about 3 to 4 foot then started to shape it. He has been growing for ten years now, so patients is the key. See picture above from about 5 years ago.
