This is my friend's garden hedge. The town administration has threatened him with punishment if he does not cut it back by half a meter. It is an obstacle for pedestrians, the say. This means cutting it right back to the stem. When he refused to do so they threatened him they would cut it back at his costs. He's still waiting for further actions as he does not see any impediment.
So soon we’ll have another beauty like the one I posted here #374.
