We spotted this photo of stunning giant owl garden sculptures covered in flowers and were intrigued by the concept of using animal topiaries to give a backyard retreat some eclectic pizazz.
This picture of owl flower sculptures taken in Nantou County, Taiwan has taken garden enthusiasts by storm and made its way onto inspiration boards via Pinterest, Tumblr, and Flickr. Even Stylelist Home enjoyed the supreme adorableness these little guys bring.
Could animal topiaries be making a comeback?
Truth be told, this photo had us rethinking our stand on animal topiaries. On first instinct, creature-shaped garden sculptures seem perhaps more suited for grandma’s formal garden than a hip, modern gal’s abode, but these flower owl sculptures show that animal topiaries might have a space in an eclectic, playful garden after all.
While inspiring, these flower owl sculptures might be a little too much work for a busy working gal, so we’ve rounded up a few other options to consider.
