    Excellent.

    Topiarised is a word I only learned the other day when watching some mad lady on gardeners world talking to some chicken hedges she was topiarising.

    Disappointed.

    This is an annual epic pruning project. We are 3/4 the way there on the long hedge, there are still three plum puddings, four soldering irons and a handful of obelisks to go.

    It’s a bit precarious perched on top of a ladder leaning into a face full of bush with little to stop one from diving in head first. 8)

    Oooh I can see a rabbit (3rd picture).

    I love topiary. Our only hedge is a large beech and I think the neighbour would like to keep it straight.

    Top work as usual mcmoonter 🙂

    Can you highlight it? We have one in the walled garden that we have been trying to catch all year. We might have stood a chance earlier but we’ve got no chance now. Strangely they’ve never shown any interest in the open meadow up at the studio.

    My brother has a tall Beech hedge across the middle of his garden, it must be twelve feet high and its a full ladder job to prune it. Lovely colour in summer and autumn.

    This was taken in 2009, the garden has changed a lot since then but the topiary is much the same.

    Can you highlight it?

    Bunnyhop (how appropriate) means a rabbit shape emerging from the hedge, like spotting a rabbit shaped cloud. It’s to the right of the spindly tree in the centre foreground. Once you spot it it’s pretty good.

    Balderdash, that’s clearly a Labrador puppy humping a cushion.

    Is this gonna end up being a gardening version of a Rorschach test?

    Ahhh… and here was me thinking it was another sex toy reference.

    muppetWrangler – so glad you could see it too, although it does seem to have 3 floppy ears.
    Sorry to scare you mcmoonter, the little devils will eat all your veg.

    There is a guy on the wolds who has trimmed a hedge into an angry bird, looks stunning, must remember to take a picture next time I’m out that way.

    Another epic pruning project. A whole lot of roses, Sycamore, Lime & Corkscrew Hazel. Three trailer loads.

    Somehow I couldn’t get AC DC out of my head.

    when I was a nipper (dad worked at Arran estates) and I got to see the results of tree weaving – various experiments carried out over the long term, they kind of done like a knot display but with branches and the trees kept growing
