flowers on the Green

During these difficult times it is good to notice what is beautiful. This photo was taken at The Green, which is actually an underground parking garage. At street level The Green is a small park, complete with signpost honoring authors, two story sculptures of stacked books, fish sculptures spotting water for the kids to play in, and lots of flowers.

Following is a link to images from The Green. The address is 400 South Tryon. Also, following is a link to this photo on Flickr.

Museum Tower apartments


On a walk, through Uptown Charlotte, this scene caught my eye. The flowering tree is in a small park called the Green. The building, in the background, is the Museum Tower apartments. The apartments are built on top of the Mint Museum.

On a personal note. The Green is next to the condos we live in. As a result this is a scene we enjoy regularly.

Following is a link to the Museum Tower website. The address is 525 South Church Street.
