Topiary Takeover at Franklin Park Conservatory

Monday afternoon, Laura, Charlie, and l spent a couple of hours at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Columbus Ohio. Here are a few example.

The Exhibition Topiary Takeover.

Twenty-five topiaries made of living plants will take over the gardens this summer—fourteen of which have never been seen before! The animal topiaries are filled with plants to mimic the colors and textures of fur, skin, scales and feathers. UNESCO Natural Heritage Sites inspired the animal topiaries and the plantings that surround them. Visit sea creatures from the Great Barrier Reef, a show-stopping peacock from India, a majestic bison of the plains and more
