Don't forget to make it all with a two-level effect with a little path going between . . .

And you shall cut down the tallest tree, WITH A HERRING!
 
2012-07-30 12:48:55 PM  
NEE!

Be more. Covered in shrubbery.

Brave sir robin ran away, ran away, bravely ran away.

probably a thorny shrub... full of pricks.

There's a house near me that has something like this. Every spring the car disappears, every fall it comes out of hibernation.

I hope the spiders don't learn to hotwire that thing.

Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies onto BMW's are under considerable economic stress in this period in history.

To be honest, don't all shrubs look a little smug?

I know George Bush did.

Chip off the old blockhead.

But seriously. Shrubberies look smug. They look over done. They seem to be trying too hard to pretend that they are just small trees. If you plant they with enough flowers, trees and other assorted vegetation you may get a more natural look, but shrubs always look like they have a company pension plan, full dental and four weeks vacation and they're not afraid to tell you so ad nauseam.

If you must have an apartment-sized tree, go for a bonzai. They can be quite cool, except for those fake bonzais they sell really cheap in florists. They're not trees. They're not even bonzai. They're just moss with a bad tude.

Whoops!* That should be bonsai, not bonzai!

Smug mode!

I had a look at the article. Once again, life imitates art, as Oscar Wilde observed.

I remember an old Private Eye cartoon of a British gardener who trimmed a topiary hedge into the shape of a large American car to spite the Jones and the Smiths next door. This looks like somebody got the same idea. The effect would be improved if the vines were in full leaf.

I know George Bush Barry Soetoro does.


FTFY

Personally, I like topiaries. That 'shrubbery' is simply overgrowth. NOT the same thing.

Well, it *is* a BMW. You know, the overpriced Mercedes wannabe?
 
2012-07-30 01:54:31 PM  
Perfect use for a 3 series.
 
2012-07-30 01:58:22 PM  
That makes me sad., and I don't even like BMWs.

With helpful picture of what lush with greenery may look like.

Are you, sir, a shrubber?
 
2012-07-30 07:05:32 PM  
Would that be a smubbery?
 
2012-07-30 08:17:16 PM  
shrubbery has to be at the gym in 26 minutes
