The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Each friday at 6:00 pm, I'll post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.'
This time, it's a cool wooden sign: do you know where it is?
If you recognize it, enter your response in the comments!
I'll reveal the answer next Friday.
Last week, we asked you to try to identify something you can see all over Culver City:
The answer is: it's a close-up of the bark of a Chinese Elm, which spread across some of the city's most beautiful streets. (Forgive the grey skies in these shots. I took them this morning, and we had some June gloom).The Chinese elm are native to Asia. They can grow up to 60 feet tall, but more often they are as wide as they are tall. They have a trunk that often forks early in life and a spreading growth habit. The green single-toothed leaves are small and shiny and are often retained as late as December or even January. Their wind-pollinated flowers, produced in early autumn, are small and inconspicuous.
