Yes, I know. This shot has featured in another of Becky’s square extravaganzas, but it has to be worth a second look. This is the Cloud Hedge in the Herefordshire village of Brampton Bryan. It is an astonishing 300 yards long, and you can find out more about its history in the (back in) Time Square post: The Ancient Cloud Hedge of Brampton Bryan.

A glorious hedge but very glad I do not have to maintain it!!
I’ve met the woman who does, or at least did. She has a fab plant and pot shop in Maws Tile Works. She has a great knack with the garden shears!
Extraordinary knack, or should that be skill?!
It was worth a second look at this, Tish!
What a weird and wonderful hedge. 🙂 Definitely worth a second showing.
It is weird and wonderful. I remember the first time we drove by it – and not believing what I was seeing, and how much there was of it!
The hedge is so beautifully maintained. Thank you for showing the second time.
My pleasure, Amy 🙂
Awesome find! So very unique…
Wow, these are beautiful, Tish! I do really like seeing this kind of thing!
It’s eccentric but lifts the spirits. A good English trait 🙂
this is a wonderful treasure, and looks like the fairies live there
They may well live in those green ‘clouds’, Beth 🙂
I remember our first visit with you. The revisit was fun again.
happy that you could make a second visit, Beverly 🙂 🙂
I would just love to be in that very spot, right now!
Definitely a very pleasing spot, Angela.
Isn’t it fabulous? And I never got to visit the lovely garden in Brampton Bryan, ‘Bryan’s Ground’ well-known for irises.
I think you mentioned Bryan’s Ground to me some time ago, and I meant to remember it, but didn’t. Ah well.
Is the whole community involved in maintaining such a spectacular feature, Tish?
No, it belongs to a grand private house, well hidden by the hedge! I guess they must call in specialist hedge cutters to keep it so neat.
That first shot is a beauty, Tish! Well worth another look 🙂 🙂 And you’ve reminded me where I can lay my hands on some, if need be.
Ha! Always good to do a spot of recycling 🙂
Those are fabulous 😀
Thank you, Cee.
Marvelous, marvelous, marvelous, Tish, and so quintessentially English. 🙂
I’m thinking it belongs in the wonderful but slightly batty category of English foibles 🙂
One of the more out-of-the-ordinary things I’ve ever seen and yet it fills me with a kind of nostalgia. I love it.
‘A step back in time’ sort of feeling, I agree.
absolutely beautiful! thank you for sharing 🙂
Thank you, Lola.
It makes me think of the Father Brown mystery where the guy uses his cane to stab someone through the hedge. #spoileralert
Oh like the ‘whodunit’ element. All is not as peaceful as it seems…
Stunning! Such a magical feel it lends to its surroundings!
It’s a very pretty little village, so yes, the hedge makes it extra-special.
Most definitely worth a second look!
