Pointed planter

OK, it might be a fountain with a planter at the far end, but Pointed Planter is better than Pointed Fountain. I waited… and waited… and waited… and continued to wait for everyone to leave the area. It was high traffic time at the Chicago Botanic Garden, and a little middle-aged Chinese man even stood over my shoulder waiting to see what I was going to do here. I don’t mean he was a few feet away, I mean he was over my shoulder. I could hear him breathing. He didn’t ask a thing. He just got closer and stood there in great anticipation of what was to come. In the end, he may have been disappointed, because he didn’t say anything, backed up a few steps and whirled away. His wife gave me a head nod like “thank you” and followed him out the gate.
