Armadillo in the Grass

Just the other day I noticed this on my walk. It’s quite remarkable, a rosemary bush clipped into a pretty damn perfect armadillo. I was surprised that I never seen this before since it’s on one of my regular walking routes. Thanks to Google’s street view cam I found that the topiary is in fact fairly recent. I hope to one day encounter the artist who created this tribute to our city's talismanic critter and pay my respects. Meanwhile, bravo!

Animal topiaries must been every gardener's dream! How neat to make one out of rosemary!

I've been seeing armadillos in the grass (or garden beds) too, but unfortunately they are not made of rosemary.

Cute! I've seen a Longhorn topiary complete with, ahem, genitalia off 38th street.
