Long Description:
Die Blumenwiese ist ein 200m² großes Wandgemälde von Friedel Deventer an einem Wohnhaus der Firma Straube, das in Zusammenarbeit mit der Kasseler Sparkasse entstanden ist.
Es wurde 1983 geschaffen und erfreut seither die Autofahrer der Holländischen Straße stadteinwärts. In 2006 bekam das Haus eine neue Wärmedämmung und so wurde dabei das Gemälde erneuert.

Sogar Schulklassen haben schon Biologieunterricht dort erhalten, für Stadtkinder ist es schwer, Wildblumen am natürlichen Standort zu sehen.
