What's in the planters?

Postby Paco » Fri May 26, 2006 12:38 pm

The planter garden thingies surrounding the Square have some plantal matter in them I think. Not being 22 feet tall, I can't tell what's up there. And not owning a half-million dollar condo, I can't look out my window and see.

So, anyone know or care to guess at what's in there??

Well, at least you won't find butts in there, or garbage. Hopefully, some trailing blossoms and vines will be planted there. I would have preferred something eye-level.

You mean those godawful, ugly-as-sin, aesthic mishmash, months-and-months-of-constuction-and-still-not-done, stupid-lookin', big-hunk-of-hideous, are-they-planters-or-fountains on the Square? Those things?

I don't know.

those ugly ass things I think will be fountains if and when they ever get done. Yesterday I saw them jackhammering up the cement they poured last month on EWash. So it's back to the drawing board for them. They must have cost a fortune with all this construction.

The planters are on Wisco St, WWash and maybe MLK and the square. They have these huge phallic symbol things sticking up too. That's the only thing you can see unless you have a stepladder with you.

I thought "Nail's Tales" was enough phallic art for awhile but I guess others thought differently.
