What is it?!
It looks like a speeder from Star Wars!
So when they park their car in front of their place and it’s raining, they have a natural umbrella?
We have a ton of those kind of things here, too. Mostly, though, they are shaped like birds.
It’s called a “nosery hedge”…they are quite popular in Mexico and most South American village’s. They are also called “protruding hedges” because they stick out like from the other hedge’s. They are a sign of great fertility and fast cars or in the South American village’s fast boars who let children ride them….
I am surprised that you did not know this Rupert…..
That is a hedge as liability! I still really like it though 🙂
great idea with the 12 seconds quick posts. that’s a great way to get through the month! 🙂
