YOU CAN’T MISS John and Annette Bemis’ house. Theirs is the one with the hedge neatly shaped into a 150-foot multi-car train that stretches around the corner lot. It’s a Canby, Oregon, landmark John Bemis planted and has grown, sculpted and tended since 1978.
“When we purchased our home, my first thought was that the corner was perfect for a train, so I planted one,” Bemis says. “It took three years before it was big enough to trim, but over the years, my train has caught the eyes of many people.”
