Human Shrub Gardens In Front of Colchester, Essex City Hall

 - Jul 13, 2009

Not often do you see plants watering themselves, but a mystery person in Colchester, Essex, has been doing just that - dressing as a shrub and planting marigolds outside city hall.

The Human Shrub is protesting a cut of funding for gardens in the city, and the removal of flower gardens throughout the area. The masked avenger leaves signs where he plants reading, "Dear Colchester, With Love, The Human Shrub."

As far as protests go, this is a pretty humorous, loving and earth friendly one!
