Just the right moment

Trees against red wall 1

A couple of years ago, a new little strip mall was built near downtown Downey. The various storefronts were painted a variety of strong colors, but it was never really anything striking to look at.

But today, everything just happened to come together for one car-stopping display. It had been cloudy when I left home, but the sun came out for a few minutes. It was nearly sunset, so the light had that wonderful gold tint to it. This tree was in full flower, with bright yellow blossoms mixed in with the strong green of the leaves. And finally, this tree is growing right in front of what has suddenly become an amazingly red wall!


  1. Good to bring the gorgeous artistic potential of this mall to people's attention. Looks like it is coming into its own.
