THESE two happy faces have brought a smile to people in Middlewich Cemetery.

This picture was captured by Sheri Ward at the older cemetery grounds near the gate on the corner of Croxton Lane.

A topiary gardener with a sense of humour has brought two shrubs to life by sculpting eyes and a mouth on the bushes as they were clipped into an ornamental shape.

Sheri said: "Just caught these two happy characters on my walk out of the cemetery!"

Alison Fray added: "I noticed them last week, they brought a smile to my face."

Other passers by have described the fun shrubs as 'brilliant' and 'fantastic'.
