ye gawds!

Is that real?
Beverly Andrighetti: Most definitely, Ray. Only one of the many topiary exhibits that were constructed & displayed last year at the Montreal Botanical Gardens. Here's another example:-

Really! I want to go!
Beverly Andrighetti: I'm afraid you missed it, Bonnie, this exhibit was shown last year.
There is a lot of hard work to create this piece of art from trees Beverly... but it's not to my liking...
but you did take a great photo of it....petersmile
Beverly Andrighetti: We could only marvel at amount of work it must have taken to produce the number of exhibits on show, Peter.
I have never seen anything like this!! It must have taken ages to create
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, we were blown away by the incredible detail that we saw in all of the exhibits, Bill. Countless hours of work for sure but the results were well worth it.

That is crazy Bev., you would not want to leave me in charge of this.
Beverly Andrighetti: Nor me either, Chad. Best to leave it to the professionals.
What an amazing creation Beverly!
Beverly Andrighetti: One of many that they had on exhibit last year, Richard.
That's the most amazing topiary I've ever seen, and so colourful. You have captured it well.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much, Suzanne. There were so many more to marvel at. Here's another one:-

stunning colours
Beverly Andrighetti: They really stood out in the hot sun, Chantal.
I love seeing these, Beverly. They can be so beautiful and I appreciate the creativity and the hard work.
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, we can only imagine the dedication and number of hours it must take to create these masterpieces, Mary.
Amazing topiary but I wouldn't want the job of upkeeping that.
Beverly Andrighetti: I'm with you, Brian.

What sort of bush/tree is that red, Beverly?
Beverly Andrighetti: I'm not positive, Lisl, but I believe they may be some sort of red flower.
Fascinating topiary and with that great blue sky too.
Beverly Andrighetti: It was the perfect day to visit, Jacquelyn.
