It's Spring! Time to start thinking about what you're going to plant in your garden. Well, here's a suggestion! How about a Dragon Topiary from Nieman Marcus!

Here's the sales pitch:

"Imagine Jones's face when he putters out on his riding mower Saturday morning and catches a glimpse of your new front yard. He's likely to decapitate the wife's roses. Of course, our 100th anniversary 100-foot long dragon topiary from Black Barn Farm isn't meant (just) to inspire envy.

"First and foremost, it's a living, natural work of art from topiary artist Matthew Larkin, complete with gold-leafed horns, claws, teeth, and fins. With its blown-glass eyes and custom-welded steel frame, it's an investment, really.

"Whipped up on your land with 15 indigenous plants, it's a gift you can give yourself and your heirs. Work some Tom Sawyer mojo, and Jonesy will be offering to trim it for you.

"Price Starting at $35,000.00 Call 1.877.9NM.GIFT for more fire-breathing details."

Too pricey for you? Want to make one of your own? Here's another cool dragon topiary. I bet those creative juices are flowing now!
