A 75-year-old man spent 13 years transforming his 150-foot-long hedge into a dragon.


John Brooker, a 75-year-old man from the United Kingdom, transformed his ordinary 150-foot-long hedge into a green dragon.

The amazing creature stands up to 10 feet tall and stretches along one side of his rented farmhouse cottage.Mr. Brooker said, « I was standing at my kitchen sink one day and found the hedge boring, so I decided to do something with it. »

He spent three days trimming the pattern every two to three weeks, comparing it to painting a large bridge.

« I think the dragon was inspired by my time in the army. » « The dragon must have been in my subconscious because I did two tours in Malaysia. »

« I added wings, and the head was pretty easy, but every year I add a few lines for definition, » he said, referring to his wife Pippa, a former graphic designer.

Protruding eyes, widened nostrils, and a crested back characterize the topiary hedge.
