If you’re a Prominent Person in Mainz (or you’ve reached an adequate level of notoriety, which might in fact be the same thing, come to think of it), you’re liable to get a vine planted in your honour.
Just below the walls of the Zitadelle.
(Not that you can see the vineyard – or the Zitadelle, for that matter – anymore, being well hidden by the new carpark.)
Which gets uglier by the day, if that’s at all possible.
My mate, Methuselah Whatley, liked the idea.
I think he was looking for a possie for his.
I might just zip down there one evening next week and do some Guerilla Gardening…..
