This sign is in the Palo Alto Demonstration Garden
and honors a Master Gardener who was an inspiration to many of us and one of the founders of the garden.
Step 1: Create the Design Layout in Adobe Illustrator.
The sign is a 17 1/2 wood circle. I created type on curves (hint use "type>create outlines" to convert the time to a vector shape). The interior floral element is clip art.
