I've been sick for the past few days, so I guess shrubberies got a bit of an extension, but I promise that this is the last of them... for a while. I hope you enjoyed these topiaries from the Bay Area, and stay tuned for Gray Week!
In the foreground here, you can see two Puffs, and in the background is a sort of Pom Pom/ Swirl hybrid. I also love that chimney! There are lots like it in my neighborhood, and I think they are very charming.
These neat rows of Drums remind me of typewriter keys.
Here are two lovely examples of the Grimace. As you can see, a single Grimace is very nice, but having several really elevates a garden to the next level.
I suppose you could call this shape the Fro Yo.
And this one might be the Cairn.
Here are some lovely Platters and Pom Poms:
I like how boxy these ones are.
These are like boxy Corndogs... Fishsticks?
And I love this Stacker! It's almost more like a Push Up pop.
This is one of the best cared for Swirls I've ever seen...
...whereas these ones have gotten a little out of control.
This one looks like a Ziggurat.
A neat row of Doorknobs.
And finally, here are a couple shots to show you how prevalent these topiaries are on certain blocks.
