Laurie at Glimpses of South Pasadena posted a response to my hedge trimming post that showed not just precision trimming but actual topiary. I've been on the lookout ever since for some local topiary, Monrovia style, that could hold its own against her photo. I think I may have found it. I especially like the trees with the rings.
This one's also unique in that it isn't even on the property but out in the parkway.
