The shape of topiary in the Mendips

The shape of topiary on a walk in the Mendips with walkitcornwall

This topiary was seen on a walk in the Mendips when I was up there recently with the family. Now call me old fashioned but am I missing something here or are these topiary shapes, well you know, rather obvious?

Or has my misspent youth come back to haunt me? Have the locals said anything, or even noticed? We went to Cheddar Gorge, Longleat and the wonderful Westonbirt arboretum. If you love trees, their shapes, the complimentary planting of a wide variety of native and non-native species then go to Westonbirt. Especially in the autumn when the Japanese maples are in full colour. The Mendips and the Quantocks are wonderful. How about the Mendips Hills and the Quantocks for a walking holiday? Now there’s an idea. Watch this space.
