Going native

Ginger plant in bloom

Ginger plant in bloom

Ah, wilderness!!!

It does sometimes compete with needlepoint in my book.

The Native Plant Garden opens today at the New York Botanical Garden, not exactly a wild place, but you get the idea.  In fact, if you were reading my blog last summer, you know already how much I love it.

Oooooh, can’t wait to go back in July to see for myself this wonderful new permanent addition to the NYBG.

The NY Times had a feature story about the Native Plant Garden in the Arts section yesterday.  You can read it here.

I truly love native or rare plants.  The pic you see above is the Jamaican Ginger that sits contentedly in the front yard.  It finally bloomed this year, and smells divine.
