Hi there, does anyone know what artist was displaying/selling metal wall sculptures with a sun/moon motif. I want to buy one of his pieces as a gift.
I grew up a block away from this little plant, and have never in the dozens of years ive seen it with ‘500 foot branches’ or ’40 blossoms per sq foot’
That last time I was there the largest of the 5 or 6 plants was 50 ft from one end to the other at best. This event is nothng more than a money making event for the owners and the city. The ‘facts’ in the article are grossly exaggerated to say the very least. I do admit it is a nice plant to go and see, but definitly over hyped!
Actually the owners make no money from it, nor does the City. It’s a Chamber event, not a city event. And the property owners are kind enough to open their property to as many as a couple thousand people in a single day. Since the Chamber hires the buses and charges for the tickets, but it’s free to get in to the vine, how exactly is it that you think the property owners make money? A little gratitude is in order, not cynicism.
