In this photo, all you can see is flowers. However, I can assure you that there is a six-foot chain-link fence underneath those flowers.

I don't know if the trend of building factory outlet malls has spread beyond the northwest or not. We have three or four of them in Oregon and I know of a couple in Washington. These are modern shopping malls of factory run stores. Anyway, in the town of Woodburn, Oregon, about 30 miles south of Portland is the Woodburn Factory Stores. This is a beautiful mall which has expanded twice and I think another expansion is coming. This flower covered fence surrounds the undeveloped land owned by the mall developers.

Cal,

That's quite impressive. Is it a single vine with flowers or individual plants at spaced intervals trained to grow on the fence?

Aloha

I didn't get that close a look at it but, since the rest of the mall is decorated with hanging baskets, I would assume these flowers are also streaming down from hanging baskets attached to the fence.

Cal,

I asked because there are a few chain-link fences here on which a vine called the 'Kuhio" vine grows and it literally looks like this except the flowers are all deep purple. I've got to get me a picture one day.

Aloha
