HEDGE FUND IN THE LANDSCAPE

Cute Kills in a landscape. Yes, another Tara Rule. Why?
.
Often, cute, has lovely origins but in execution the effect is derivative, clumsy, pedantic. Cute hijacks thought processes. It's static. Not a dynamic statement. Nor timeless.
.
What to do instead?
.
WHIMSY.
.
If hedges are the walls of garden rooms, shouldn't they have windows?
.

I took this pic in Atlanta while Joel Tressler was shooting for my book.

Fun thought but you are right, the execution ...not so good.
I thought it was a telephone booth!
