On a recent visit to Arlington, Virginia, we headed out for a morning cup of coffee.
As we strolled through nearby Rosslyn, we came upon this amazing urban plaza.
Located on the corner of 19th & N. Moore Streets, it had tables, Adirondack seating,
shade trees and planters bursting with impatiens, ferns and ivy.
What a welcome spot of reprieve amid the traffic and tall buildings!
Its backdrop was a super-colorful mural painted by street artist Jason Woodside.
A bold vortex of geometric stripes and dots in such bright, vivid colors.
How could you leave without a smile? It worked for me!
Check out Jason's website.
