Tacky topiary II

Nice bush

Had topiary on the brain today, after cruising by The Gables and found this ridiculous pic in the tubes. These bodacious babes were created by a crazy guy named Topiary Joe in Tellico Plains, Tennessee. The giant Topiary Women reportedly stand at the Las Vegas Nove/Playboy Club/ Palms Resort, Joe says, in, ahem, “trimming form.” They’re made of “indoor/outdoor weather proof UV resistant faux* boxwood.”

(Box, wood, trim, bush… can this get any worse? Stop already!)

I wonder if Topiary Joe needs an intern?

(Do click his link to see more awesome topiary and arty wire frames.** This old man has made some serious ish. He also gives generous permission to steal all his “catalog” photos, adding, “Just be sure and credit me, you little snipe.”)

Call me a snipe! I’m inspired. Check out a few more of Joe’s amazing critters:

So, an elephant walks into a pub...

Puff the magic gardener...

Topiary T-Rex

* Does faux boxwood count? Don’t the plants have to be alive? Ehhh, who cares. This man obviously knows how to shear a shrub!

** Frames, huh? You don’t say. I apparently have a lot to learn about making bushes grow like dinosaurs and dragons.

    This has just made me think of that horrible womens’ razor commercial…. the one with the lady walking by all the lovely triangular topiaries and looking dismayed at the unshaped ones…
