Red Car Property: "Leave Plants Alone!"

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 10, 2012.  From a distance, I thought a vandal had tagged the agaves near the Silver Lake Ave Public Staircase on the Red Car Property.  Up close, the message is to the point and not graffiti.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)
According to a Riverside Place neighbor, the adjacent homeowner, who planted the defensive landscaping years ago, was pissed off at the hack job the City did on the agaves when the City was doing brush clearance on the Red Car Property.  So he painted the message in English & Spanish on many of the big agaves.
