That's Random: Taking Topiary to a Whole New Level

More Ways to Waste Time reader Harriet just sent over a batch of photos of the Olympic Gardens in Beijing. In a word: INSANE.

Take a look:

Thanks so much for sharing these, Harriet!

(P.S. For more homegrown examples of wacky topiary art, check out designer Hannah Berman's great photo series on the whimsical shrubs in her Albany, California neighborhood on her blog, Printer & Piemaker.)

Wow...look what you can do with almost unlimited, almost free, labor! Those are amazing :o)

Myrnie_Twin -- yeah, there is that.

I'm not even going to touch the human-rights issues in China ...

Wow- the dolphins and buildings were my favorites! I wonder if they will keep them going after the Olympics- can you imagine the labor involved?

Yowza - I'd better get crackin' in the backyard this weekend.

First, I didn't train for these Olympics at all and now this. Yeesh.
