I used to work in Hammersmith on the Fulham Palace Road, and often walked past this rather lovely hedge down one of the side streets. I put a picture of it in the book and one of Miki’s colleagues showed it to her – it is her creation so she got in touch with me.
She’s sent me these up to date pictures of the hedge. Still not sure what animal it is but my current bet is a Scottie dog – Miki assures me it is still a work in progress, so it’s one to keep an eye on.
Edit: Miki tells me: “a Scottie it is….my favourite aunt / relative always had Scotties and this is for her. She was a French resident but bought her Scotties here in England due to inbreeding in France. I can’t get the Scottie square jaw quite right and the ‘coat’ is thinning at the side. Ah well…”
