Succulent Topiary Dancers

Succulent dancers

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.
