Topiaries in Morro Bay, CA

Ross and Hedy Hale own the Full Moon pottery and studio gallery here in Morro Bay. Check out these topiaries that Ross continually creates every day! The couple also manages the Rancho RV park right next door--his topiaries grace the sidewalk in front of the fenced in park. I peeked at the topiaries within the park, behind the fence and wanted to walk through the park, taking more pictures, but was too shy to ask to do so. I love to walk this block long stretch on Harbor St, and take in these artistically and meticulously pruned bushes and trees!


See the very cubed shaped bush or is it a tree (?), in the background, behind the car? Yes, that's a topiary too!





Ross' topiaries bring to mind a documentary I watched called: 'A Man Named Pearl' here's a small segment of the documentary:



If you haven't seen this...you should!
Thanks to Ross and Hedy Hale for letting me take pictures and post about their topiary creations!!
