Living sculpture

Spiral bushes

"Topiary: the horticultural practice of training live perennial plants by clipping the foliage and twigs of trees, shrubs and subshrubs to develop and maintain clearly defined shapes, perhaps geometric or fanciful... As an art form it is a type of living sculpture." (Wikipedia)

I tend to like wild and crazy gardens, but you have to admire the time and patience it takes to create and maintain these designs.
