Beijing Trims Its Shrubbery For Olympic Topiaries

With the opening ceremonies less than a month away, the Chinese are putting away all their lead paint for toys and spiffing up the joint in preparation for the 2008 Olympics hosted by Beijing.

They’ve been busy scooping the algae out of the bay where the sailing competitions will be held, translating their menus into English (which includes some dishes like “chicken without a sexual life” and monitoring the smog levels.

They’ve also been busy trimming their shrubbery as well.

In the Beijing Olympic Gardens, the hosts have been busy creating giant unusual topiaries.

Here are a few of the images. You can see more of them and descriptions at Life in the Fast Lane.

    Monty Python!!! So, I’m wondering, if I want to gain access to the Olympics in person, could I just bring them a shrubbery?:)

  2. Scout, now there’s a thought. lol

  3. Did they use a herring?
