Topiary @ Scenic Sunday



I have a strange predilection for topiary. I am fascinated by their clean lines. Their very presence screams ART!  Here are some that I found during our Asia tour last summer.

There were several at the Grand Palace in Thailand

some are cute shrubs, like little kids, grouped together

others, simply elegant
 

These ones appear to be talking to each other. . .

Some loom majestically

I saw some in Vietnam too. Theirs was another form of art, bonsai. Several were really old.
 



I walked around this area for a long time, can't get enough of the beautiful potted art.



I have a simple one in my backyard too - teehee

Some of them appear to be talking to each other, some others not. They are boxer.

Many years ago, I had quite a collection of bonsai! They were pretty expensive. My favorite was a wonderful tiny Japanese maple. Its leaves turned brilliant red in the fall.

I always love the topiary at Disney. I didn't notice these wonderful ones in Bangkok when I was there.

the topiary is one of my favorites. I can't believe how huge the bonsais are!

P.S. Sorry for this late visit. We have a get together yesterday with a group of Negrosan, a crowd of 200, and we came home around 2am.It was unbelievably late and I did not get to sleep until 3 am.
