    Apparently Nottingham Council decided it was time to give their city a clean-up.
    Street cleaners were sent out to pick up all the litter.
    Trees were trimmed, bushes were cut back from the pavements....

    One council employee took it upon himself to go just one step further............................

    Not sure which is funniest, the graffiti in the first place or the intimate topiary.

    Wonder how long before this goes viral and everyone with a trailing Clematis gets the Banksy treatment? :D

    That isn't appropriate for a pubic forum - it's a privet matter.......

    Looks like somewhere in London - definitely not Nottingham.

    I think it maybe in the park area of the city , but I do agree most of the back of Nottingham houses are in red brick rather than blue/black .

    Well I can forsee 2 problems here:

    1) People getting their clematis out in public
    2) The fact that a man has clearly found it dispels that commonly held myth

    :D

    Certainly not the Park. The style of architecture isn't right and the colour of brick says London or very close by.

    And the Park doesn't do graffiti !
