Irises

I present arguably the most beautiful mural in Toronto so far. The artist, Chris Irvine, has spent several weeks getting this just right and he has now actually signed it. I stopped to talk to him one day and he said that he is hoping that the city is going to plant irises and install 2 benches in the 3 ft space between the wall and the sidewalk. He has now been working on the opposite wall under this railway overpass and this one is a Monet, to go along with Van Gogh. An incredibly dreary space is being rehabilitated!

This is truly lovely, RedPat. I think it fits the space well and I hope the city DOES plant some irises there.
