Flowers for the Rain on Calle 16

Who knows what the masterminds behind community-building Calle 16 will come up with if/when it snows, but for rain, they're decorating 16th Street from Thomas to Roosevelt streets with flowers.

So if you nabbed a few at Phoestivus last night or spy a few pretty ones in your (or your neighbor's yard), bring them over to Calle 16 and hang out with a few cool mural artists while you're at it.
