Perhaps I should start a series entitled “A for Effort”. While some of my peers promote high standards in floral presentation (which is a good thing), I tend to also appreciate it when someone simply makes an effort—however small, however novice, however random.
Take this image for example. For lack of a window sill or flower box, window bars doubled as container supports. In New York City where there is much to distract the eye, somehow I zeroed in on this endeavor. No doubt the Coleus et al was hardly viewable from indoors. I conclude they were placed there to uplift the spirits of passing strangers.
Be it on a fire escape, around an oft-piddled curb sapling or in an airway shaft, it’s an effort. In my book any effort gets an A—a gesture Appreciated.
Should any readers wish to share their own “A for Effort” viewings—by all means send them along.
