Suzanne Ellis and her partner Ben Bennett love two things in life more than anything else - gardening and the Royal Family.

And as these pictures show, the seasoned horticulturalists really are quite Queen-fingered.

The couple, from Fifield, Berkshire, have painstakingly sculpted two giant busts of Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh and placed them in their front garden for the world to see.

Ugh, I'd never have something like that in my garden.  Talented yes, wise no.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Plaster and terracotta...wow. They have alot of patience.

“Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate,
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I, Shall take the hidden paths that run,
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.”

I am not amused with the hair!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

HAHA! I love them!
Well, because they're in their yard not mine or my neighbor's :w00t: .

Clever, different, kind of a monster-chia-pet thing happening.
No, I actually like them. Great hair.

They'd scare the fur off my dog though.
