Ta-ta, TY PARK: Repairs begin on City Park topiary sign

Posted by on Fri, Nov 1, 2013 at 12:48 PM

It's already been done — just in time for the first day of the Voodoo Music + Art Experience at the park:

Clearly the results are not perfect yet — it's sort of the botanical equivalent of hair plugs — but things can only get better from here.
