The Sights Down Town

There is a mural on a downtown street that always catches my eye every time I pass through, and the roses that are drawn on this wall always bring a smile to my face.

The painting covers the whole wall, and I think it's so striking.

"It is the immortal Love
that has beat his glorious
wings in the body and the
mind, the true source of
inspiration for all great
artists and their art."

Have a great week, loves.

Someone must have worked very hard and long hours to paint this mural. It's gorgeous! I hope that you are feeling better and the worst part of the flu is over for you now. I hear it is really going around and I pray that I don't get it! :)

Take care of yourself!

Hi Sheri,
Oh I just love this painting on the wall. The roses are magnificent. I bet in person it is even more striking. How special to pass by this way in your travels. Little blessings and eye candy along the way.

Thank you for sharing.
Also for stopping by and your kind comment. Yes, I could not live without a hutch. They hold so much stuff. Where would we put our stuff?? LOL
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I like the way one seems to be fading and the other blooming in a perfect red.
I love those "stolen" smiles on our way to Life.
