Great holmertz 2021-11-04 2:46

Hello Jorge,
This is an unusual photo, but the flag lowered to half-mast is a sad reminder to the world of how the arrogance of the Brazilian government has caused a disaster to its own population. The desaturated surroundings enhance the impact of the flag.
Best regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Manicured Bushes

Thank you, Gert, 'manicured is a very good descriptive word for what you are seeing.

This is a view of a private garden belonging to an ordinary house. The owner is obviously very keen on gardening and keeping everything neat.
'Topiary' could be used because it is the art or practice of clipping shrubs or trees into ornamental shapes, but usually it is applied to bushes which have been shaped into a feature or an animal.

Cheers, Bev :-)
