The Perseverance of New York City’s Wildflowers - The New York Times
Lenape people from their ancestral land of Lenapehoking, which encompasses New Jersey, Delaware and parts of Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New York State. The Lenape knew spring by another bloom: white tufts of flowers from the serviceberry tree, which powder its branches like snow in April. Today, serviceberries still bloom in Brooklyn, in both Prospect Park and John Paul Jones Park.A wildflower can refer to any flowering plant that was not cultivated, intentionally planted or given human aid, yet it still managed to grow and bloom. This is one of several definitions offered by the plant ecologist Donald J. Leopold in Andrew Garn’s new photo book “Wildflowers of New York City,” and one that feels particularly suited to the city and its many transplants.Scarlet bee balm.Yellow wood sorrel growing by the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge and Battery Weed fort, in Staten Island, N.Y.Hedge bindweed and rose of Sharon by the ConEd plant on Avenue D, in Manhattan.Butterfly weed.Mr. Garn did not intend for “Wildflowers of New York City” to be a traditional field guide for identifying flowers. Rather, his reverent portraits invite us to delight in the beauty of flowers that we more often encounter in a sidewalk crack than in a bouquet. “They all share a beauty of form and function that offers testimony to the glory of survival in the big city,” Mr. Garn writes. He asks us to stop and consider the sprouts we might pass every day and appreciate them not just for their beauty, but also for their ability to thrive.More than 2,000 species of plants are found in New York City, more than half of which are naturalized, Mr. Garn writes. Some were imported for their beauty; ornate shrubs such as the buttercup winterhazel, star magnolia and peegee hydrangea all reached North America for the first time in a single shipment to the Parsons & Sons Nursery in Flushing in 1862.Others came as stowaways, as the writer Allison C. Meier notes in the book’s introduction. In the 19th century, the botanist Addison Brown scoured the heaps of discarded ballast — earth and stones that weighed down ships — by city docks for unfamiliar blossoms, as he noted in an 1880 issue of the Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club.

International Women’s Day Marked With Special Delivery Of Flowers For Frontline Workers At Elmhurst Hospital - CBS New York

The delivery to Elmhurst Hospital is one of 10 happening across the country in celebration of International Women’s Day.
“I walk on the shoulders of so many women who do little things every day to make health care better,” said Elmhurst Hospital CEO Helena Arteaga Landaverde.
Landaverde is the first woman to hold the title CEO at the hospital. She has something she wants little girls to know.
“Your zip code does not define you,” she said.
Her roots go deep in Corona, Queens.
“Being a person of color in this zip code, the likelihood of you being a successful leader and CEO is slim, less than 4%,” she said.
Landaverde defied the odds.
“Elmhurst Hospital, one of biggest in Queens, and someone from the neighborhood is running it. It’s a huge honor,” she said.
And accomplishment, one to be celebrated especially on International Women’s Day.
She started as CEO one month ago. It’s fitting the tulips she received Monday also symbolize new beginnings.
Monday’s special delivery helps kick-off a month long celebration. The culmination a virtual tulip festival at the end of the month.

He not only saved the company from an uncertain fate but used the experience to reposition us for growth in the future. Bob added to the legacy of a great American company and planted the seeds for the Goodyear of the future.
