Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!
Still with MosaiCanada, I start out today with three perspectives of The Polar Bear, the topiary representing Manitoba. The town of Churchill, on the shores of Hudson Bay, is known for the presence of these animals in the fall.
Turning around, I took shots of this pair of topiaries. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is represented by The Puffins. Atlantic puffins are the official bird of the province, and some 500 000 of them make their home there. This pair of topiary sculptures have quite a whimsical feeling to them.
Neighbouring the polar bear is this topiary, Howling Wolf, a mix of animal and human culture. The wolf stands by an inukshuk, a common feature of the Far North, rock markers made by the Inuit. This particular topiary version features floral patterns in a pattern suggesting the aurora borealis.
Looking over to the other side of the path, I took another shot of the horses and lobster fisherman topiaries. We shall continue with more of this tomorrow- I am at present still putting these posts together, so there's plenty still to come.
Lovely photos. The topiaries are delightful.
I love those little 'clowns' of the air, and will always remember a time when I saw so many of them whilst visit several Scottish Islands.ReplyDelete
