Gardens as Signs of Hope: Topiaries in Baghdad

I just found this recent article on the website of The New York Times, and I found it nice to read - and see, for there are pictures - that at least some people in Iraq can once again turn their attention to gardening:

It is also interesting how topiaries are so in vogue there. I think it is often underestimated to what extent horticulture, even in unusual circumstances, is subject to trends and fashion.
