Trio…The Best Shaped Trees at Gilroy Gardens

I really like trees, besides the ocean, I think they’re my favorite thing in nature. Anytime I go to a garden, I hope to see some neat topiary designs or some beautifully shaped Bonsai. Thinking about this led me to wanting to share with you all the really neat art of tree-shaping. I read about this awhile ago and I didn’t even know it existed! The trees below were shaped by Axel Erlandson, a Swedish farmer that perfected the art and even opened up an attraction dedicated to his trees in California back in the ’40’s. The trees are now housed at Gilroy Gardens and these are my favorite 3…

That is so amazing! I’ve got to see these trees for real one day!
