Umbrellas and Gardens


We're singing the praises of Spring in the Big Apple.

This week's show includes an interview with the authors of Garden Guide: New York City and a visit to the Native Flora Garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. And since, as they say, "April showers bring May flowers," we've produced a couple of segments on umbrellas, including the story of a Brooklyn woman who makes dresses, tote bags, and even doggie clothes out of broken, discarded umbrellas.
