In the photo directly above, a few daffodils are catching some shade from the sun's rays by being within a sturdy, masterfully crafted tree pit. CURBED reporter Diana Budds calls these structures "micro-Edens," but the city's parks department calls them "tree pits."
|MY BOOK SERIES|
The goal of these books is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in my rooftop urban garden in New York City, my story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. These books are directed to children and adults who are curious about birds (as well as gardening) want to learn about these topics from a unique perspective.
But I digress! Getting back to tree pits, I'll conlude my post by saying I recently learned that not having a green thumb wasn't a deterent to the owner of a UWS eatery (Lokal Mediterranean Kitchen, 473 Columbus Ave in NYC), in "planting" a tree pit. He used artificial flowers as seen in the next picture.
