Floral Clock

The new/ old floral clock is almost ready for the the plants and shrubs to be put in place!

The Singing Mushrooms

The mushrooms are almost ready to be installed. The base looks to be complete. There might be a few other minor details to go through, but the main structure is now ready.

 

Flying Eagles

Flying Eagles has received new paint. This is minor, but will help make the area look more fresh.
