Mauve planters

If you don't like the colour of the planters, come help out

stand here before you and take full responsibility for the colour of the planters at the Evergreen Mall.

You should have come out and helped me decide on the colour of paint. You should have helped me paint! No one was available to help! So I had to choose on my own. I wanted something bright and alive, it’s not as though they are going to stay there forever. I chose the colour “Girls Rule” and I happen to really enjoy the colour along with a good many others. Mind you, they are a much younger bunch than me.

The good news for those of you that are not so happy with the situation, there is a plan in place to have most of them moved.  The planters have been adopted by five businesses and two individuals. The adoptees care for the planters for the year or longer if they wish. They water and weed them, they may even decide to paint them a colour which matches their business if they so desire, or they may paint them their favourite colour.

Now the bad news, I have adopted a planter and my plan is to make it more colourful and vibrant than ever. My suggestion to you – adopt one of the planters next year and participate, and you too can become part of the solution.
