Our Lady of the Roses

A wonderful Guadalupe mural on a florist's shop in Highland Park, at Figueroa and N. Avenue 57. What better advertisement for roses?

This is one of the things I love about our Mission District -- which is the Hispanic area of San Francisco. First of all, you feel like you are in a more brightly colored, artistic foreign country. And you can turn a corner and come across the most wonderful artwork on such prosaic canvases as laundromats, autobody shops and tacerias.

I'll resist making a "Jean Genet" joke, for the good of the commentariat.

Sorry I haven't visited in a while. Been really busy (not sure that's a good excuse). I like your new handle. I remember your post about Aunt Snow.
