Meet the lady that makes the Pike’s Place Market pretty in a unique way

I was strolling through a busy day at Pike’s Place Market when my attention was caught by this older lady crouching down on the pavement. Today was not my first time noticing her. She was in a different spot of the Market, doing the same thing the day before. I was curious, but I did not want to interrupt her. She looked so happy, so focused. She was meticulously placing flowers in the cracks between the concrete slabs. As I watched her work, I was struck by her resilience and determination. She was smiling at everyone who took a moment to appreciate her doing. A young couple, probably tourists, took a moment to ask her why is she was doing this. She smiled with her whole heart and said “I just want to make the Market more beautiful.”
