Thanks, odinthor.


I meant to thank you earlier for answering my question about the expanse of flowers in front of the Ambassador Hotel.

And the article you found on Frisco Mari (head gardener at the hotel) was very interesting. My mind was blown by the flower statistics.

I searched everywhere for a photograph of Frisco Mari.. but came up empty.

I wonder if Mari's greenhouse (60 x 180 ft., or about the size of an Olympic sized pool ), shows up in any old aerials? ......*hint*..... *hoss*
