You may have seen the pictures on Facebook and thought “Wow! I would love that for my yard!” You may also have wondered whether these topiaries were real. They’re not – but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful. The images are the creation of artist Richard Saunders, and they all feature Tolly, Saunders’ beloved Russian Blue cat who died in February. Saunders never thought the images would go viral. “It’s just a bit of fun,” he told the BBC. You can see more of these magical images on the artist’s website and Facebook page.
