While the hospital was completed and opened
just under a year ago, planting for the plaza
and water features at Eskenazi Health did not begin
until this past spring. Grasses and reeds were
placed in the water features, while sod
was laid and numerous flowering plants dug
in and around the huge trellis/arcade,
flowers that will provide color and aroma for
visitors who will relax within and under its shade.
For now, all we have are hints of what is to come.
Colored lights bounce off the trellis framework
and the few vines that grew up into
the supports over the summer.
Underneath, the little Duos deli provides
lunch and snacks for its guests,
while the water features give peaceful
background noise for people sitting around them.
