Guerilla Sunflowers, Part 2

Sance, my sister in crime

Sance adds some yellow

We started with planting sunflower seeds in front of some time-honored buildings. Probably the passers-by thought that we were peeing there but that made it even more funny.

Then we visited the nearby IMAX cinema and I asked one of the girls at the counter whether she would like to plant some sunflowers in their boring bambus pots in the big entrance hall. To my astonishment she smiled, agreed and a few minutes later we had three employees of the cinema jumping around from pot to pot planting seeds. The best thing was that none of them asked what it is good for. They even didn't care that Sance and I took a lot of photos of them. Whow, what a start.

Afterwards we visited the public library. It seemed as if books and plants are mutually exclusive because it took me 15 minutes to find a flower pot. The public servant allowed me to plant some seeds although the pot did belong to a colleague he didn't even know. There was a pot without plant but with a sign saying "Two lychee plants will grow here soon". Well, now they have to share their pot with some yellow flowers. I hope the owner will be surprised.

The Katharinenruine is the remains of a church destroyed in WW2. The square in front of it looked kind of devastated und needed some funny flowers desperately. I guess it will be hard for the sunflowers to grow there but I'm confident.
