Took a mid-afternoon break to go visit the RBG and take a good look at the art exhibition that I'd skipped over the last time I was there. The art show was great, plus there was lots of activity as the new Helen M. Kippax perennial garden takes shape. Volunteers, staff, plants and earth movers were everywhere in what looked like organized chaos. The new reflecting ponds are being planted up - all that is missing is the water - can hardly wait! We ducked around all the activity and saw some neat installations - from Lee Vivot's Icetime at a mere $215,000 to smaller pieces such as Jean Pierre Schoss, Musky on a Stand made out of recycled steel and oil tank for $6000. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.
