blue trees

Last week an artist and a crew of volunteers painted the trees outside Port Moody City Hall bright blue. The purpose of the project is to draw attention to the trees and the importance of trees in general. The paint is environmentally safe and will wash off naturally over time.

Andrew and I walked down to see them on Saturday. I think they are beautiful the way they are, with the blossoms just budding. Andrew thinks they will look so much nicer with the blossoms on. Several of our friends think they are very ugly. I can't wait to see the newspapers and read about any controversy that ensures. It will be interesting to see if anyone stands underneath a blue tree in the rain and gets died blue from the drips.

question: what do you think of the blue trees?

mompoet - blue is my favourite colour
