Elle Me Dit - Mika
Elle me dit “C’est ta vie.
Fais ce que tu veux, tant pis.
Un jour tu comprendras.
Un jour tu t’en voudras.”
Elle me dit,
"Fais comme les autres garçons,
va taper dans un ballon,
tu deviendras populaire.”
Sunflowers, pocket parks and other ideas aim to beautify vacant lots
The Washington University Sustainable Land Lab Competition’s goal? To find something creative to do with all the vacant lots in the country.
I noticed a packet of sunflower seeds at work a few days ago and it reminded me of the huge fields of sunflowers that were near the Ford headquarters in Dearborn in recent years. Those fields really added a lot of interest to a very plain area in the middle of the city, and I started to think about how sunflowers could potentially function in Detroit. (I drive along W. Warren a lot so that’s what I had in mind - plenty of grass). I just stumbled across this article that discusses the use of sunflowers in Rustbelt cities as well as this project in St. Louis.
