Gardeners are the Funnest People, eh?
Here's a fun news bit from the Brits about a man who is getting heat over his expressive topiary artistry.
1. Middle aged gardeners tend to be the most subversive lot, only becoming less so as they age due to back and knee problems.
2. I really dislike that when the authorities come around with a problem about one's garden but won't disclose who the complainer is.
3. Southern California needs more topiaries! I was driving in Anaheim the other day; at the corner of State College and Ball Road is a gas station with lush landscaping replete with animal-shaped shrubbery. It made me smile even in the face of $4 plus per gallon petrol.
Thanks to dirt du jour for pointing the finger toward this article.
