I am so worried that this Radermachera ignea (synonym: Mayodendron igneum, common name: Tree Jasmine) would topple over some day. The tree has grown considerably since it was first planted but the staking is not helping at all. Occasionally, it did flower and it was a delight to see the orange cauliflorus flowers along the branches. A link on this unusual tree is provided below:

As for the two other attached photos, this was supposed to be a lion topiary in the Wizard of Oz fairy tale. But the Ficus was overgrown and not clipped, hence the shape is off. The 3rd photo showed the face but the eyes were still missing.
