Elephant needing a haircut


This elephant is one of four animals standing at the children's playground in Fontvieille. Methinks he needs a haircut.

I agree. He does need a hair cut or at the very least a trim!

I always wondered how they clip the bushes into shapes of animals. Neat!

Fun photo!

This reminds "Louis" of the shaggy condition of the Republican Party in the U.S. (whose symbol is the elephant).

Excellent piece of topiary, I had a go at it myself once,nothing as fancy as this though. He's great bet the kids love him. :)

I think that Nathalie is very aroused by this photo Jilly. Me too. I'd like to get out their with my secateurs. I have hedge trimmers but they are so heavy that I prefer to take the time and use the lighter ones. What a gorgeous elly.

I have to admit, this is the first time I've seen an unmanicured tree sculpture. Most of them are always so meticulously maintained.
