Plant Amnesty can kiss my Bonsai!
Okay, it's one thing if you don't like Beacon Hill's funky shrubbery, but its a whole different issue when you refer to it as being 'goofy' as Cass Turnbull seems to have done in today's Seattle Times article on Plant Amnesty. I can certainly appreciate wanting to protect plants from senseless mutilation but Plant Amnesty seems to have nominated themselves the arbiters of taste with comments like "When the inherent beauty of a plant is compromised, it's painful for those of us who know what it should look like,"
Who gave Plant Amnesty the authority to decided what plants should look like? They have a Shear Madness photo section on their blog and I actually think that some of the photos are amazing and I find their comments to be culturally insensitive.
That's why we are introducing a new T-Shirt! Let Plant Amnesty know what you think of their mission and show your Beacon Hill pride at the same time! All proceeds go towards Beacon Arts celebrating creativity in all its forms on Beacon Hill.
