Turning tumbleweeds into snowmen

Photos by Christine Peters

A small group of volunteers gathered in Elysian Park this morning to help build this year’s tumbleweed snowmen after last week’s windstorm delayed the holiday decorating project.  Under the direction of Recreation and Parks Department workers, the volunteers trimmed and shape the tumbleweeds, which were there mounted on to poles to await painting and accessorizing ( eyes, hats, earrings, etc).  If the painters show up and there are no more windstorms,  four tumbleweed figures are expected to be set up in different spots across the park later this week.
