For John, it’s a passion. And it’s one that he’s taking to stunning heights.
But he isn’t just making sure that they look neat.
He’s actually turning them into a dragon!
This living work of art stretches 120 feet in length and reaches 10 feet in height.
All this is done with nothing more than a pair of regular old hedge clippers and a 6-foot ladder.
Naturally, the dragon hedge has become quite the tourist attraction for people in the area.
“I’m totally blown away by the fact that so many people have seen it,” says John. “My grandchildren said ‘Granddad’s gone viral, that’s pretty cool’. That’s the sort of reaction I’ve been getting all the time. I’m totally bemused by it.”
This is some serious dedication! But more than that, it’s great that he’s brought so much magic and joy to his community. The world can use some more people like John!
Share John’s incredible creation with your loved ones and fellow animal lovers. They’ll love it!
