Wow..how cool is this picture and the story is amazing as well
Beverly Andrighetti: I couldn't believe how well all the topiary displays in the garden were presented, Robbyne. I'm sure a lot of thought and hard work went into the project.

The dog looks as if it could use a bit of topiary Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Haha, I think his shaggy appearance was intentional, Chad.

Is the dog real? I truly can't tell. This would be a cool place to visit.
Beverly Andrighetti: No, the dog is part of the topiary display, Mary, and, yes, it really was a cool place to visit. There were so many wonderful works to see, each one with a story to tell.
Amazing stuff isn't it
Beverly Andrighetti: There were many more like this throughout the gardens, Janet. Yes, amazing stuff.
Worth a visit this is an impressive display
