I park in these spots outside Lincoln Square’s north entrance, across from the Independent Media Center, a couple of times a week. In the last few weeks, I’ve really been drawn to these clusters of…sunflowers? These are a type of sunflower, right?
I just think make this boring little strip of parking spots and meters quite lovely. Not sure if it’s the City of Urbana that plants them, or someone else, but I’m a fan.
Also peep the Hotel Royer in the background there. It almost looks like a real hotel! Unfortunately it still will not be that until the end of February.
