I looked out the kitchen window this weekend and could see a spot of yellow — a few blooms that have survived our first hard frosts! (And no, I’m not sure what the name is.)
I finally made it to the High Line, a new park on the west side of Manhattan that uses an abandoned railway line. Loved it! Want to go back regularly. A second part will open next year, and much to my delight, there will be a third section. One day it could stretch from Gansevoort to 34th Street! This park was an immediate hit, and even on a windy Tuesday afternoon, it was busy.
It uses lots of grasses, so it still looks good this time of year. It is inspiring me to use more grasses in our yard. Perhaps one section of just ornamental grasses?
