Beauty Springs

Walking down Grand Street in Soho today I noticed that the CP Shades store had closed (not shocking; many shops have gone out of business in the neighbourhood). What was striking though were the large sunflowers bursting out of the empty storefront's window box. Their pop of yellow against the grey blue of the building commanded attention on the street, their sturdy stems unwavering in the wind. Beauty springs in unexpected places. And today, amidst the rain drops and shuttered buildings, it was found in an abandoned window box.
