Look! (2/12/10)

“Afterwards” (Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC)

These trees are on the plaza across the street from my office. I love how they are wrapped by mounds of snow. It makes me think of the decorative wraps people buy to cover the bottoms of their Christmas trees (is there a name for those—I’m drawing a blank).  They remind me too of candles sticking out of holders on a birthday cake. What precision—to cart away all of the snow but for these several mounds. I wonder if this qualifies as public art?
