Didn't plan for the party to go on after dark. Glad you stayed.

Many special guests helped us celebrate.

Great shot, Marlin. Thanks for sending it.

Mark put piece #10 on this weekend. Slowed down traffic on Pratt street as the sculpture is now clearly visible above the parked cars.  

Is that a watering can?  That explains the growth spurt.  Thanks, neighbor.
Lots of visitors this weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!

A great photographer (and our neighbor) Joe Nash posted some great photos of the sculpture in his photo blog.  Check out some of his other great photos while you're there.

Mark was up early this morning installing piece #5.  Thanks for all of your comments on Facebook.  If you're passing by, maybe on your way to the water ballet in the park, we'd love to collect pictures of our friends with the sculpture.  Post them here or on Facebook.  Thanks!

Last night's rain led to a growth spurt this morning.  #3 and #4 are both now above ground.  Lots of activity around the pit today with a Zip Car sighting early this morning and our new neighbor from Boston moving in this afternoon. Welcome to Pratt St!

Friday, August 1, 2014.  Ådded Piece #2.  Visited by what we think is a number of newly hatched Red Admirals. 

Beautiful summer night in Baltimore. Here's Mark leveling the stump and installing the hardware for the first growth of the sculpture.  Special thanks to our neighbors, who came out watch and support the first stage of the project.

The plan is to "plant" the first piece on July 30, 2014.
