Topiary Gardens are my secret passion.
Throughout my travels, I look for local topiary gardens to visit. A topiary is a living art piece, and their fantastical shapes, in an open landscape, can feel magical and other-worldly.
Today, I thought that we would highlight a few of these one-of-a-kind gardens.
Take a look at these gorgeous Topiary Gardens around the world…
