Just for fun: Mosaicultures


This year, Montreal hosted the Mosa├»cultures Internationales, a horticultural event extraordinaire. Unlike topiary, which mainly involves pruning, mosaiculture uses a variety of techniques, including painting and sculpture. You might think of the results as stationary Rose Parade floats.

It's too late to see the exhibit in person, but Alexander at My Virtual Garden has given us a virtual tour that you won't want to miss. 

Here's a sample. 

A 35 foot high Lady with cranes:

A 20 foot high shepherd:

Horses, Dog and Sheep

And an equally tall Mother Earth:
