Hats off to the Oak Bay gardeners who created the flower spaceship and installed the little green man at the corner of Fort Street and Foul Bay Road.
It has been a joy to drive by all summer to check out what the little green man is up to today.
Some of my favourites: reading the Sunday paper, which he was doing the day my family was visiting from out of town; checking under the hood with his wrench in hand; filling up on gas – 99.9 one day and 127.9 the next.
Recently he was holding his packed suitcase in one hand and waving goodbye with the other.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who is sad to see him go.
I hope he comes back next year.
