    “There is no such thing as accident; it is fate misnamed” — Napoleon Bonaparte

    Rollo Tookus’s Extra Credit: Topiary

    Topiary is a fancy word for plants, trees, and bushes trimmed into imaginative shapes. European topiary dates from Roman times. An acquaintance of Julius Caesar called Cnaeus Matius Calvinus introduced the first topiary to Roman gardens. Today, Animal shapes are popular (elephants, lions, and giraffes being especially common.) Topiary can also be shaped in abstract patterns,  archways, or geometric shapes.

    Note to self: Bonsai trees are basically the same thing, but tinier and still look like trees. Maybe I’ll try that first.
