Go wild in NYC!

nycww_whiteNYC Wildflower Week, May 2-9

The 2nd annual NYC Wildflower Week celebrates all things green and wild in the Big Apple—the hundreds of native flowers, trees, shrubs and grasses that are found in the five boroughs. It gives New Yorkers numerous ways to connect with and be inspired by their local environment. Free activities throughout the city include: botanical walks, garden tours, ecology lectures, children’s events, planting opportunities, cooking classes, and food tastings at top restaurants. It is the largest celebration of National Wildflower Week, an initiative begun by Lady Bird Johnson, and hosted by the Torrey Botanical Society.

Her steadfast commitment to using the finest locally-grown produce and the choicest seasonal ingredients has helped make I Trulli and Centovini two of New York’s favorite restaurants in terms of freshness, quality and variety.

    It’s quite a site to drive east on 290 from Austin to Houston and see the road lined with the springtime flowers planted by Lady Bird Johnson.

    The LBJ Wild Flower site is hosted by UT btw:

    Thanks for the link, DB! I was looking for “Wildflowers” by Tom Petty when I came across this video, which I thought was equally appropriate.

    I’ve just spent a week in Beijing sans internet but have been catching up on Do Bianchi: that steak and ’68 Barolo got my juices going!
