The entrance to East Passyunk Avenue never looked so inviting. Take a moment to stop and smell the roses and other beautiful plants our “Clean and Green” Committee has started potting at the triangle of Passyunk, McKean and Broad. Two humongous flower pots and a reworked Jardiniere, in front of the Wachovia bank, have all the makings of a secret garden. Thanks to the support of Wachovia, the East Passyunk Business Improvement District, and EPX! Special thanks to C&G Committee chair Tim Lidiak and our own “Mr. Green-Jeans” Jeff Goldman and crew for the excellent job. So nice to see the gorgeous variety of plants so finely husbanded, excelsior!
