New York City Wild Flowers: The Manroot or Wild Potato Vine, Morning Glory (Ipomoea Pandurata).
NEW YORK CITY (NYC) IS VERY WILD!


New York City is much more than a concrete jungle. It is wild with nature too. Just walking along trails in un-mowed and wooded areas in parks, one could see a wide variety of wild flowering plants and animals. Often, colorful floral landscapes have away of pulling you. It will make you wanna say -- "forget about it" -- "I could live there." There is nothing more relaxing than looking at wild flowers, animals and woodland creatures scampering through, up and around trees and bushes. Detach or look up from the electronic leashes at times folks. It is great to slow down, stop and smell the roses. Email: WildNYC@DIA-Inc.com. Pics compiled randomly.

Manicured grassy areas of parks are cool but New York City Parks Department should intentionally designate sections of especially the big parks to the wild growth of wild flowering (and non-flowering) plants. These plants are more than just pesky weeds man. Some are herbs. Mow after plants seed in late summer or fall.
