Echinacea is a genus, or group of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family. The genus Echinacea has nine species, which are commonly called coneflowers.
.
.
Planting purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) in the garden or flower bed draws bees and butterflies, ensuring that nearby plants have plenty of pollinators.

“YOU ARE WELCOME HERE

To our friends, neighbors, and visitors, we say: you are welcome here. No matter who you are, what you look like, who you love, how much money you have, what your religious beliefs are, or where you are from, the High Line is for you.

Like many, we at Friends of the High Line are concerned about the divisive, hateful speech and actions we are hearing and witnessing across our country. While these feelings are not new for many, we recognize that this is a crucial moment to take a stand for what we believe is right. It is important that we do not become complacent in our mission to cultivate equitable and open public spaces that reflect and celebrate the diversity of our communities.

Friends of the High Line is committed to reexamining and strengthening our continuing efforts to ensure the High Line is a safe and welcoming place for everyone. If you have any suggestions for how we can make this public space better, please send us an email with your thoughts: info@thehighline.org – Friends of the High Line”

#TheDrive producer asked for a description of who I am for the intro spot. I’m rarely succinct. I contemplated using #booklover or #cycling #advocate but I choose the label : ac·tiv·ist
.
.
By definition it is a person who campaigns to bring about political or social change.
.
.
I embrace the word. If change is to come you have to be actively involved.

I was surprised & impressed by the depth of the conversation we had with @iamjessejones ... this is 3 1/2 minutes out of 45 minutes together of time well spent connecting with three fabulous people. .

The Don Valley Brick Works (often referred to as the Evergreen Brick Works) is a former quarry and industrial site located in the Don River valley in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Don Valley Brick Works operated for nearly 100 years and provided bricks used to construct many well-known Toronto landmarks, such as Casa Loma, Osgoode Hall, Massey Hall, and the Ontario Legislature. Since the closure of the original factory, the quarry has been converted into a city park which includes a series of naturalized ponds, while the buildings have been restored and opened as an environmentally focused community and cultural centre by Evergreen, a national charity dedicated to restoring nature in urban environments.
