Rail Ranunculus

In the Utrecht Central station area, a wall made of old trash cans from trains has been on display for some time now. In the summer the wall looks cheerful with flowers and plants, but in the winter the wall looks less colorful. That was the reason for station manager Mirjam Schokker to ask me if I could brighten up the wall.
