Topiary - Montreal Botanical Gardens


”The story took place in China in the late 1980’s.  XuXiu Juan, a girl born in northern China, had loved red-crowned cranes since her earliest childhood.  After graduating from university, she travelled very far, to Yangcheng Nature Reserve to care for these cranes.  But one day, when she tried to save an injured crane, she slipped into a swamp.  The crane was saved but the girl never came up again to the surface.

 

The moving story of this girl, told far and wide across the breadth of China, has touched the hearts of thousands of people.  To pay tribute to the wonderful spirit of the girl who saved the crane but lost her own life, a song has been composed to tell this story.  The song’s title is... A True Story.”

I too love sandhill cranes but have decided to try to save any. This is a beautiful shot.
What a sad story, I presume this is in memory of her.
What a sad tale. Another marvelous work of art and I loved the video
Sad tale, but a wonderful piece of art Beverly!
Woo, this one is scarier!
