Clipped Hedges

My mothers garden is a very exuberant space of controlled abandon, rampant in the summer with flowers and scents and textural in the winter with frozen shapes. Next door is a contrast to that, clipped yew hedges make somber and solid shapes in the winter landscape. I prefer my Mums style of garden but I do like the strong shapes of the clipped hedges next door.

Your mum looks as though she lives in a beautiful place, and that sky so blue!
