Some of the flora out here are quite spectacular. The bushes, especially, tend to take on shapes that really catch the eye. For example, the topiary above was not carved by an overzealous gardener—it just grows like that. It's the Mara's own form of modern art. Anyway, pictured below are a few of my favorites: the Daffy Duck Shrub, The Backpacker (that one really is amazing—check out his hat and his backpack!), and a tree I think looks like one of those giant paper dragon heads you might see at a Chinese New Year parade.
