A New Toni Morrison Documentary Gives the World’s Greatest Living Writer Her Flowers, and Plants New Seeds - The Root
Davis, poet Sonia Sanchez and Oprah recounting treasured anecdotes, and critics like the New Yorker’s Hilton Als contextualizing her work. But most importantly, you can find Morrison herself, gazing directly at the camera, talking to you.AdvertisementIt’s this final ingredient that’s most seductive: Morrison has long possessed an ethereal presence, with people around the world gobbling up her advice, her observations, and her books as though she were a living oracle. But the documentary gives the Nobel Prize winner greater depth, granting Morrison the space to tell jokes, reflect, and muse on the life she’s lived and the work she’s done.“I think that the Toni you see is the Toni that I know. A very open, very funny, astute, incisive Toni Morrison,” director Greenfield-Sanders tells me. He first met the Nobel-prize winning author when he took her photograph—a well-documented smoker, Morrison first appeared before him with a pipe. Greenfield-Sanders, who’s shot portraits of Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Serena Williams, and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, says he was first struck by Morrison’s confidence: “She always did have a kind of presence that was undeniable.”AdvertisementGreenfield-Sanders tells The Root he first conceived of doing a Morrison documentary after doing a film about singer, songwriter and Velvet Underground lead Lou Reed. The timing of the retrospective, filmed more than 15 years before the singer passed, allowed Reed and his legendary contemporaries, like David Bowie and Patti Smith, to participate.“You want to do a film about someone when they’re still able to participate in it,” Greenfield-Sanders says. “And I think that that’s what’s so strong here, is that Toni tells her story.”AdvertisementOne technique Greenfield-Sanders uses to foster intimacy between Morrison and the viewer is to let her talk directly to the camera while everyone else talking about her is set at an angle—a nod to the fact that the focus, even when she’s not in the frame, is always on Morrison.There is much in the film for viewers in all stages of Morrison fandom. The most devout Morrison readers will likely be familiar with the criticism she received in the ’70s and ’80s that her work was too concerned with black Americans; she is “is far too talented to remain only a marvelous recorder of the black side of provincial American life” read a New York Times book review of Sula).

Live a little, eat a flower | Sweet Basil and the Bee - Chico Enterprise-Record
What to do with them? Melissa Rodriguez, executive chef at New York City’s Del Posto: “While they are delicate, they aren’t precious,” says Rodriguez, who loves the blossoms’ mild summer squash flavor. She tears the flowers to toss with cooked pasta, shreds them into frittatas, and stuffs the whole blooms with lobster meat, fresh mint, and mascarpone. “They’re only at the Greenmarket for a few weeks at the beginning of summer,” she says, “and as a chef, I get so excited.” You can also sauté them in butter with scallions and then add beaten eggs to the pan and bake for a simple frittata. Or, toss them with spaghetti, golden tomatoes, basil and olive oil for a quick dinner. Dress them with olive oil and lemon in a salad of pea tendrils and arugula to serve with burrata and warm bread, and you’ve just made an elegant but easy meal.
Traditionally you see squash blossoms stuffed with some sort of cheese mixture and fried, and occasionally as a topping on pizza. More modern is Melissa Clark’s un-fried appetizer presentation, and even more interesting are the Oaxacan squash blossom quesadillas by James Beard award-winning writer and Texan, Lisa Fain.
Fain writes, “While I’m always a fool for anything fried, my favorite preparation with squash blossoms is in a quesadilla. Diana Kennedy has written about this dish, found all over Oaxaca. In true Oaxacan fashion, these quesadillas are made with fresh corn tortillas and Oaxacan cheese also known as asadero or quesillo. This stringy cheese has a mild flavor, and while it melts smoothly its thickness for some is a bit too chewy. If you don’t have access to quesillo, Monterrey jack or Muenster works just as well. And while I enjoy the flavor of grilled corn tortillas with the squash blossoms, being a Texan I still prefer to use flour tortillas for my quesadillas rather than corn.”

For the Love of Flowers, and Photos - http://www.we-ha.com
Oddo. “Most of my construction years were as project superintendent, starting in early 1971 at the UConn Health Center for two New York contractors and in later years for Standard Builders and Industrial Construction. Most of my projects were schools.”
EO Smith High School in Storrs, the West Woods Upper Elementary School in Farmington, and Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School in New London are among the projects he worked on.
“I retired five times and was called back to work five times,” Oddo said, laughing. After helping build the Hilton Doubletree in Bristol in 2012 and working on some renovations at Bristol Hospital for ACG North America, in 2016 he retired for good.
Oddo could certainly sell his seeds, his flowers, his photos, or his expertise for money, but he said he sees no reason to do that.
“I’m here for the joy of sharing my plants, my love of flowers.” He gives away prints, seeds, and seedlings, and it doesn’t bother him at all when people download his images from Facebook. He posts a gallery of photos on the Neighbors & Friends in West Hartford Facebook page nearly every day, just to brighten the day, to make people happy.
“I just want to be kind to everyone, and share my flowers.”
At age 81, Oddo shows no signs of slowing down. Several times a week he goes to Elizabeth Park for one of his twice-daily three-mile walks, where he checks out the flower displays. He also walks in Blue Back Square, and goes to W... May 31, 2019
The great mystery of flowering plants by the roadside - The Riverdale Press
I, therefore, took several pictures, particularly of the leaves and flowers, and sent an e-mail to the plant identification desk at the New York Botanical Garden.
The garden offers many services to the public, and is available for identification questions by phone — (718) 817-8604 — or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). When I am in need of an identification, I usually send them an e-mail with attached photos of the plant in question along with whatever pertinent information I can add, including where the plant was found, moisture conditions, lighting conditions, and dates of blooming.
I usually get an answer back within a few days. The photos I sent off showed an individual plant, massed flowers and the leaves.
When a provisional answer came back — provisional because the professional manning that desk was on vacation — it said that it was definitely not Queen Anne’s lace, suggesting instead that it might be sweet cicely (Myrrhis odorata). Then I received a follow-up e-mail suggesting it might be poison hemlock (Conium maculatum) or spotted water hemlock (Cicuta maculata), both of which are highly poisonous.
For those who remember their classics, the poison that killed Socrates was a decoction made from some form of hemlock. Fortunately, they also sent me a link to a site for weed/wildflower identification to help me further. I checked out several suggestions and found a wide variety of plants — all from the Apiaceae (carrot) family — that strongly resemble each other.
Back I went to Farragut Avenue to puzzle this out. It was definitely not sweet cicely because the crushed leaves did not smell like anise. It was not water hemlock because the leaves were wrong.
And so I went down the list of other Apiaceae options and came up with wild chervil, Anthriscus sylvestris, as my provisional answer.
But I like certitude, so I brought various parts of a plant to the botanical garden and they confirmed that it was wild chervil. All of this back-and-forth clearly makes the point that one should never forage without an experienced professional overseeing the entire exercise.
Wildflowers are frequently vacation goals. Fortunately, they do not exist solely in faraway locations that require arduous travel and careful timing. Any plant that is self-sown is a wildflower, although some are considerably more memorable than others.
I have no doubt that there are many other locations in the Riverdale vicinity which are worth returning to in order to view other wildflowers. If you already have other favorite locations and wish to share them, I would be delighted.
