On Saturday, all of Union Square Greenmarket smelled of lilacs. It seemed every vendor in the park had bunches of them for sale. It was heavenly.
And this NYC Grows woolly pocket garden was pretty cool, too. Each pocket was planted with a different vegetable, flower or herb. Pretty freaking neat, and a reminder that, even in this most urban of landscapes, we need plant life to keep us sane, healthy and well-fed. (I planted my windowsill herb garden this weekend; how about you?)
