Things I See Around Town

Leroy Fox is a popular restaurant in Charlotte. On the wall of its al fresco dining area, I noticed this attractive wall hanging.

It’s nice to see these live succulents displayed in this way. This restaurant is popular with families with kids. Could something like this spark an interest in gardening by the parents? Could a child ask questions about such an unusual display of plants and find a lifelong interest? Kudos to the management of Leroy Fox.
