tulips and blossoms: “better than sewage”

.  . For coverage of the Pump Station in the Park Controversy, see “the at-risk West Lawn of Riverside Park” (below), and “Not In Our Park!“, at “snowmen at the gates” . .

 One of my favorite Stockade Grande Dames reminded me this afternoon that tulips were “better than sewage” as a focus of attention. Now that the neighborhood has a nice complement of tulips and other blossoms along its streets, I finally have enough flowery images to share here at suns along the Mohawk, despite the (almost total*) failure of this year’s cherry blossom crop. I think they’re a lot better than sewage, and I hope you agree, after checking out our Slideshow.
