must watch/read this week #4: yoga and wildflowers

This is the last–and lightest–of my four suggestions this week.

Dreaming of Wildflowers on the Kripalu blog, Thrive

 

Kripalu’s Thrive blog is one of my very favorite blogs now and I recommend it to everyone, not just yoga lovers. This brief post, which happens to be a video called “Dreaming of Wildflowers” features Kripalu landscaper, Kevin “Moose” Foran’s description of his planned transformation of the Kripalu grounds.  65 years ago, the property was primarily lawn, which needed to be mowed.  Each year since, he has turned a few acres into wildflower meadows, resulting in now only 25 acres that need to be mowed, thereby creating ecosystems and lowering carbon emissions.  He describes the land as an “open canvas.”  Lets all be happy that February is over because the month of March brings something that will make those of us who have been utterly worn out by this winter breathe a sigh of relief: the first day of spring.
