A single-level raised flowerbed holding a variety of flourishing plant life painted blue with spray painted stencil details.

The photographer stood outside of Cup Foods in order to take this image. Cup Foods is the corner store that called the police to accuse Floyd of attempting to make a purchase with a counterfeit bill, ultimately leading to the fatal confrontation that resulted in his death.
