The iPhone camera just cannot do justice to this fabulous accident in a neglected bit of London roadside landscaping.

The poor-mans box – Lonicera nitida has been used to encircle a begrudged flower bed set within a dismal, downtrodden lawn. In its centre was planted a neat pampas grass as a specimen. But that was probably 5 years ago, an now we are instead treated to this mane of unkempt foliage cascading like hair extensions down the sides of the hedged donut.

Very edgy, very Hackney.
