In honor of Pope Francis by Anthony Casselli

In honor of the Papal Visit, Lentzcaping crews set to work on a fall spruce up and planting at PECO’s main office building in center city.  The color scheme selected is yellow and white with a splash of purple. Crews tightly planted three tree beds with three hundred yellow and white mums.

After the flowers were planted, crews pruned the existing trees in twenty-one 5’x5′ concrete planters. We then incorporated mums, red kale, ornamental peppers, white violet, primrose, and white and yellow pansies. We also used white and purple angleonia and Hamelin grasses for some height in the containers.

A nice moment was when we bought a friendly younger homeless man lunch and drinks.  He is a familiar face and asked to assist us on JFK Blvd. Unfortunately insurance rules could not allow us to employ him, but it was nice for him to ask and visualize the transformation.

We also received much thanks from the people who frequently travel on Market Street and JFK Blvd.  What better way to honor the Papal Visit! Pope visit MOB 3Pope visit MOB 2Pope visit MOB 1MOB Pope 9MOB Pope 8MOB Pope 7MOB Pope 4
