Eight dollars gets you a branch of freshly cut lilacs -- better than bathroom deodorizer.


Despite temps that hovered around 42 degrees in the morning, Greenmarkets in the city were thronged today with cold-weather-weary visitors. For gardeners and their window-box-tilling cousins, there were sets aplenty of annual flowers, herbs, ornamental foliage, and baby lettuces--though who in their right mind would buy already-sprouted lettuce in a pot? Here are a few snapshots from today's Union Square farmers' market.

You could even buy potted lilac bushes in full bloom--though their viability is questionable.

Coleuses come in a variety of brilliant colors and are easy houseplants to grow in minimal sunlight.
