I went to Kingsland Wildflowers rooftop garden today. It is located in the industrial area of Greenpoint. Above is the view from the roof and below is the same with flowers. Much more optimistic, isn't it?
My dream is to have a yard or a terrace and grow only local flowers and grass on it. Isn't this beautiful?
Hardworking bumblebees. I haven't seen this kind before - with very pale yellow coloring. Kingsland Wildflowers website says that the project is committed to "expanding natural habitat and green corridors for bird and wildlife populations." So nice to see this oasis of life in one of the most polluted ares of New York City.
