Low Quality Camera Phone Picture of the Day, 7/8


New trees have been planted along Washington Avenue by the Eads Bridge - they make a huge difference!

I work in the Witte building just around the other side of the bridge and I agree, they look great. Makes me wonder what took so long? I hope they are well cared-for, and that the rest of the landscaping/grass/etc. is completed soon.

That side of Washington has long been abysmal.

Will the new sidewalk built there be extended north next to the trees? Hope so.

I saw this on my downtown run yesterday. Looked like there was irrigation. I also think the ugly yews on the southside of the street were removed and replaced with grasses and trees.

There was a water main break here about seven months ago--heaving pavement and all--and perhaps that precipitated some of the improvements.
