A photo-montage series based on our cat, Tolly re-imagined as topiary.

Master tells me that now is a time for quiet contemplation. I'm good at that myself, and GK, apprentice Topiary Cat, is learning. Here we are at Levens Hall in Cumbria, an Elizabethan house and gardens famous for its topiary.

This used to be a 'Barnardo's Home' but has been sympathetically converted to residential dwellings. Our wayward topiary apprentice appears somewhat distracted by this statue of a winged lion which claims to be our ancestor.

I, The (MM) Topiary Cat, know how to appear as a magnificently trimmed topiary whenever a mortal appears. As you can see, GK hasn't really mastered this yet.

Me and GK at Alswick Hall Farm. We've not visited there before but it's not far away. Unfortunately my apprentice had an itchy ear and didn't stay still. I don't think anybody else spotted it but Richard caught him in mid scratch.
