The clay faces of these dancers are serene, their feet frozen in an eternal dance. They live – or rather, their hair and clothes do – with some friends at the San Diego Botanic Garden. Pat Hammer, formerly Director of Operations at the Botanic Garden and an expert on topiary, is the artist. To see more of her designs, or to commission a custom-made topiary, visit Samia Rose Topiary.
In the past, I’ve shared picture of a 150lb Galapagos Tortoise, Sam who also lives at the garden. Since then his story has been preserved in an illustrated children’s book. Find out more on the garden’s website.

Wow that’s amazing. I’m a fan of succulents.
They’re growing on me… not quite like this, fortunately!
They are very beautiful. Her hair especially.
I was going to describe her as a brunette but was not sure what to say about the green highlights.
Well heck. ANYTHING goes these days! LOL
Someone has not only a great imagination but the ability to translate it into something unusual and wonderful. Well-spotted!
She’s very talented. There are several more at the garden, including some street musicians.
Stunning. Thank you.
I thought the statue in front was a real person! LOL These are incredible, great picture!
