PHANTOM PLANTER

There is an american family that lives on the fourth floor of my building. The dad is a very interesting sort of man . he happens to be the Phantom Planter ...he goes around the world planting flowers!!!!! he apparently planted some here in the building and the "mali" had a lot to say to him.!!!

"Known as The Phantom Planter because he goes around planting flowers in public places. Since 1979 he guesses he's planted over 21,317 flowers in ten states and three foreign countries. In October, 2003, he planted 202 tulips, crocuses and windflowers right under the St. Louis Gateway Arch. On April 12, 2004, he struck in Buenos Aires, Argentina, planting dozens of Morning Glories in La Boca and in the park in front of the Casa Rosada. This fall he checked out the Liberty Bell and decided to plant daffodils at the Brith Shalom nursing home in Philadelphia. (He may have an obsessive compulsive floral disorder.) "

anyway this guy seems to have held various "day" jobs including: a union organizer, telephone operator for the deaf, cabin boy on a research vessel in Antarctica, Bobcat dance producer, landscaper, lawyer, day care center assistant teacher and "Mr. Friendly" at the Brooklyn Children's Museum.

(these are excerpts from his home page http://www.itzahckret.com)

He also makes these awesome "mobiles" that he has put up outside his home.i will try and get a picture of it soon .
