Riding along the path at Tempe Town Lake, I passed "Tree of Life" by Marilyn Zwak (sorry if the name is spelled wrong, I found different spellings), and stopped for a closer look. The leaves of the trees are spaces to put the names of people who donate to a program to greenify the area, and it really needs it, as you can see in the video. I hope they xeriscape it to greenify it, but at this point even painting the dirt green would help. There's a lot going on here: a linear construction site that will be a park-like setting some day, beside an artificial lake which becomes a river at the push of a button or pull of a lever, under some soaring concrete arches of bridges which cross the lake/river, in an area where the Tohono o'odham dug canals and grew their desert-adapted crops a thousand years ago, stands a concrete sculptural expression of "tree" featuring a list of people ("leaves") who donate money to plant stuff. They should plant some tepary beans and mesquite up in there. More about this ride at my blog http://onespeedgo.blogspot.com/2010/0...
