Hyacinths from Petal Plants Flowers at the Union Square Greenmarket Saturday was just a tease of sunny, warm weather, wasn’t it? But don’t despair! Spring truly is just around the corner. I know this because Petal Plants Flowers brought hyacinths to the Union Square Greenmarket this weekend. And nothing says “Springtime” like purple hyacinths. Visit Petal Plants (or Pet-Al Flowers) Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at the Union Square GrowNYC farmers market. ~Karen Seiger, Ma
