Half arsed topiary…

…or freak of nature? By Helen. As much as I’d like to think that residents of Mt Lawley would take it upon themselve to tope a giant duck, (or plucked turkey), I somehow doubt it. If only they would! A bit too much like hard work for Arrondissement dwellers I reckon. Maybe on Las Ramblas I could believe it. Excellent worst though Helen. Frightening.

    It’s actually in a stance of aggression – back me up here – you can see the right foreleg jutting into the sunlight in a waddling squat, and the wings are held back from the shoulder, the neck craned forward and curled on itself – a classic territorial advance. I wouldn’t want to sleep there..

    I have friends here who would happily bomb your arses again for that, TLA. Magnificent.

    I like the balconies.

    No duck’s arse perspective?

    I have a large morton bay in my back yard. Perhaps I should ask what they might like to make of it?

    I could be mistaken, but that looks rather like a native frangipani (Hymenosporum flavum), and that would be a fairly normal growth pattern. A little unusual, but not wildly so.

    It looks eerily like the new sculpture they’re putting up down at the cathedral. Coincidence? Miracle? You decide.

    There is some endearingly half assed topiary just round the corner from Las Ramblas, you’ll be happy to learn. On a much smaller scale.
