Dr. Seuss Goes to Market?

Dr. Seuss Goes to Market

At least it looks like a drawing from a Dr. Seuss book to me! Another mystery for you to ponder today. Are they vents? Down spouts? A stationary horn? Well, two things I know for sure: these act as planters for flowers and grass; these are used as nesting places for birds. Post Alley, Pike Place Market. . .inventive PVC sculpture or drainage? Leave a comment if you have a guess. Have a great Tuesday, and Seattlites, don't forget to cast your ballots today!

Bergson,
Yes, I agree! ;^)

SeattleFoodster,
Thanks for providing the insight. In this case, form simply doesn't HAVE a function, let alone follows one. Hey, BTW, how did you like that tour you took? Would you recommend it to visitors to the city or Seattlites or both? And, you have a nice foodie blog. Cheers,
-Kim

Kim,

The food tour was excellent and is a great idea for both Seattle natives and visitors. It is called "Savor Seattle Food Tour."

Enjoy!! Thanks for the compliment.
