Elephantitis (north London)

This was a very overgrown hedge, so the story goes, and the yard, being hidden, was being used for various nefarious, anti-social, disturbing activities. Rather than cut down the hedge entirely (and reveal the dilapidation of the building?) the council brought in a topiary artist, who created these wonderful creatures.

Brilliant, and a tourist attraction no doubt.

How - absolutely marvellous! Thanks for sharing! Will show to my DH in an effort to persuade him that we could have penguins instead of a fence covered with ivy (although with little hope, if I'm honest!)!
