Boxwood Maze at the Getty Museum

I love the grounds @GettyMuseum in Los Angeles! This maze of greenery is such a nice contrast to the rock water fall in the background. Boxwood lends itself greatly to pruning and is often used for topiary designs. In areas where there is a lot of space geometric boxwood shapes make a nice addition and can be of great visual interest.

The museum grounds are full of beautiful flower beds and well worth a stroll.

I absolutely love the bouganvillas that drape down these metal supports like branches of a willow tree. The effect is just stunning!
