May is here which means it’s wildflower season! Friends and coworkers have been telling me to check out Summit Park, a beautiful spot right in the city. As a fellow flickr user shows in their set below, Summit Park is full of fabulous wildflowers.
I visited the park at sunset, so the flowers were harder to see.
But I was quickly drawn to this larger than life size graffiti drawing of an ET-like person.
I just love urban-wilderness graffiti.
I don’t like the destruction of private residential or business property. I always worry about the individuals who have to spend their money to clean up after it. But this tower in the park is owned by the city and maintained for its citizens to enjoy. It seems fitting that this belongs here, as much as the wildflowers do.
