  1. That mural was originally beautiful. Clean and simple. Every time it gets cleaned up or “restored” it looks worse. Too bad.

    • Seriously. How is that even possible? Or are they taking more and more artistic license every time? I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’d rather see the original still peeking out through years worth of graffiti.

  2. What a great tribute to one of my favorite trees, the black walnut! Unfortunately, the Boulevard Sentinel article does not list an author. Anyone know who wrote it?
