PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island landscape architect’s vision for a stretch of empty land near Providence’s Point Street Bridge has started to materialize ever so slightly.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2baoQN2 ) sunflowers planted on land between South Main and South Water streets as part of Adam Anderson’s project 10,000 Suns have sprouted.

The plants, currently between 5 and 6 inches high, will grow to about 10 feet tall when in full bloom. Anderson says he hopes for that to occur sometime within the next month.

Anderson had difficulty obtaining approval from the I-195 Redevelopment District Commission, but he says the sunflowers appear to be making progress despite the project’s late start.

The garden has been dubbed a “botanical performance,” where observers can view the life of the flowers from birth to death.
