Bush Transformed In To Xmas Pudding!


With such a festive-sounding surname, Roger and Valerie Holley might have felt obliged to bring some Christmas cheer to their quiet residential street. So the couple decided to clip their 20ft conifer tree into the shape of a Christmas pudding – then completed it with lashings of cream, huge holly leaves and big red berries. The front garden hedge also has a giant robin perching on top and has become a popular landmark in Yeovil, Somerset, over the past five years at Christmas time. Grandfather-of-three Roger, 62, said: ‘We are really proud of our Christmas pudding and robin. ‘It has taken a lot of work to make it look this good, but the effort was worth it. ‘The tree is still a real favorite with the neighbors. They kid us about it but I think they really look forward to seeing it every Christmas.
