I ended up making 2 daffodils for The First Craft of Spring ( www.firstcraftofspring.blogspot.com or www.boozeandyarn.com ) public art project. Choosing the quote for the project was easy... "Be the change you want to see in the world ... Ghandi", has always been a favorite of mine. It puts the power of change on the individual... you don't have to wait for change to come... YOU can be the change!
I "planted" both of my daffodils in downtown Greenville on Main St., figuring that would be the area in which they had the most impact. Sugar Daddy helped me "plant" these at around 1 am; it was a little more difficult than I had imagined... lots of people (and policemen!) are still out and about downtown at that time. It was really hard being inconspicuous!
I chose the statue of Joel Poinsett , who was a physician, botanist and American statesman, as the spot for the daffodil in the pot cozy... it is right downtown, close to city hall. I think it will have good visibility there.
And then I chose the statue representing Sterling High School, which was South Carolina's first public black high school.
