Lilly Lane Flowers & Events By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com Lilly Lane Flowers & Events is blooming at 6525 Ferguson Street where they provide floral design and planning services for weddings and events. Entrepreneur Becky Ruby-Wojtowicz’s career initially stemmed in a related area and grew from there. “I was working in professional fund raising and part of my job included special event planning, and I found that I liked event planning best. Floral design was something I happened to discover I liked around the same time. I learned initially by designing for events at the non-profits that I was working for. I was at an age where my peer group was getting married, so initially, Lilly Lane focused more on weddings. In the past year, corporate and non-profit work has grown more, as well as our work with university clients,” she explained. Their range of floral creations varies depending on the client and event. “We Lilly Lane Flowers have a full spectrum of design services, & Events with everything from a single flower on 6525 Ferguson St. [C4] a table to a wedding we have in a few weeks where we have a 200-foot floral (317) 989-9936 garland that will be assembled on site www.lillylaneflowers.com from about 20 pieces,” she described. “We were previously located in Butler Tarkington and before that, out of my home. When I first lived in Indianapolis, I went to Butler University, majoring in journalism and arts administration. Now, we work with Butler as one of their vendors,” Ms. Ruby-Wojtowicz added. Last year’s change in location created new opportunities. “We felt that Broad Ripple is one of the areas of town that likes small business and, additionally, supports conservation efforts. Even though we’re a business that specializes in cut floral, which has a short lifespan, we try in other areas to reduce waste. By offering vase and décor rentals, our glassware is returned so that as little as possible ends up in a landfill. This summer, we will have compostable materials photo by Larry Gindhart available for Broad Ripple neighbors who’d Becky Ruby-Wojtowicz is owner of like to pick them up. We’ve learned that to do Lilly Lane Flowers. composting well, you need a good mix of both food and foliage, which can be harder to come by. We’re very aware of other conservation efforts in the Broad Ripple area with businesses and neighbors that place emphasis on it, and we’re

The April meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Development committee was held on April 22 at the Indianapolis Art Center. Three items were on the agenda, but only the first one was up for a committee vote, the last two were for information only. A. 1724 Broad Ripple Avenue, Kevin Buchheit regarding a variance and sign regulation to provide for a dental office with 13 parking spaces (20 required) and a four-foot tall, 18.33 square foot freestanding sign, with a two-foot front setback from Broad Ripple Ave.(15 feet required). Petition #2014-DV2-006 Hearing May 13, 2014 before Board of Zoning Appeals. This request is for a sign at the new Martin Dentistry that will be built at 1724 Broad Ripple Avenue. This was a follow up appearance to show the new sign color requested at the previous meeting. The committee voted to support the new sign design. B. 6265 Broadway Street, Tad Lupton with beyond Architecture and Greg Stoll owner of the property, regarding redevelopment of the property for multifamily use. Have not yet filed with DMD but are working with staff. There was no presentation, the petitioners stated that they will be coming back to the May meeting to describe the changes made to the proposal to build housing units on the canal across from the parking garage after the plans are complete. Even so, there were many comments made by the committee on concerns for the project.

C. 6280 College Avenue, Suite 700, regarding establishing a HopCat craft beer bar and restaurant in the large anchor location at the parking garage. Owners are from Grand Rapids and East Lansing Michigan where there are several of these. Under 21 allowed with parents until 8 p.m. then 21+ only after 8 p.m. The HopCat team explained the layout of the proposed HopCat restaurant and bar and gave a background of their other restaurants in Michigan. HopCat would have 320 seats with outdoor dining along College Avenue. The team plans to spend 2.5 million dollars to build HopCat in the northernmost space of the mixeduse parking facility. Their Michigan locations do about 50% food sales and 50% alcohol sales. It was emphasized that HopCat will not be a sports bar or a heavy drinking bar. It is a place for patrons (including families in the early evening) to enjoy dinner and craft beers. Due to the zoning designations of the new parking facility no zoning changes or variances are expected to be required. The next public meeting of the committee is planned for Tuesday, May 27 at 6pm at the Indianapolis Art Center, 820 E. 67th Street [A4 on map].

excited to do more. It’s a very good area to be in when that’s a facet of your business,” she said. Describing the most rewarding things about her work, Ms. Ruby-Wojtowicz said, “You’d think that it would be the actual wedding day, but I think that’s a close second. What’s truly rewarding is to sit down with a client, show them pictures, floral flashcards, do sketches, price out everything and then have them come back and say, ‘You get it - you understood what I want in a way I couldn’t even explain.’ When that “moment” clicks and the trust is there, I know it’s going to be a great experience to work with that couple. There are many that have become more than clients - they have become our friends!” Repeat business has been a factor in Lilly Lane’s growth. “We’ve had four sets of sisters get married, a couple sets of friends, cousins, and even one mother and daughter who have both booked us! We’ve had a couple of folks come back and have baby showers. As of early April, we have done over 300 weddings and we’ve signed 400 contracts. Right now, we’re contracted out as far as May of 2015. Even though we do mostly weddings, we’ll get “repeat” customers through previous brides or grooms who are now standing up in someone else’s wedding, or have been in one of our weddings previously and are now getting married themselves. Last fall, a friend and fellow Butler University alumna who was a bridesmaid in three of our weddings previously had her wedding with us!” she noted. “Weddings and big events are our most publicized, but they certainly aren’t the only work we do. If you’re having a baby shower, graduation party or special event in your home or are just looking for help with holiday or home décor - we do that. We don’t do walk-in business or delivery, but aside from that, I’m happy to talk to you about any idea you have!” Ms. Ruby-Wojtowicz proposed. Event planning and wedding information is available at: www.lillylaneflowers. com. You can find them on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/lillylaneflowers. Inquiries can be answered by calling (317) 989-9936 or e-mailing: becky@ lillylaneflowers.com. The story behind Lilly Lane’s name is partly inspired by a musical group from Britain’s working class town of Liverpool. Becky’s father, a physician, is a Beatles and their classic, “Penny Lane,” is one of his favorite songs - changing the lyrics to “Becky Laine” when she was a child. “Picking the name was easy lilies are my favorite flowers, Laine is my middle name and the rest is history,” she concluded. Lilly Lane Flowers are budding with springtime in Broad Ripple Village.

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle Indiana State Fair Coliseum

Weeks ago I was thrilled to see the old Indiana State Fair sign hoisted to the top of the building replacing the Pepsi Coliseum neon (nothing against Pepsi – this column is fueled by diet Pepsi and popcorn) and I couldn’t wait for the chance to peek inside the building. I had the opportunity to go behind the scenes at the newly remodeled Coliseum a few days before the public opening and it is grand! I tend to be suspicious of change and couldn’t imagine how the 75 year-old could be made better. I was wrong. I was counting the hours until the open house for the folks that had worked on the building. While I didn’t swing a hammer or run any wire, I do know the guys who installed the beer lines (yes, beer!) so I tagged along as their guest. I was so excited that I arrived before event started. You can ask the editor of this fine paper or any of my three employers – I’m never early for anything. Ever. The renovated Coliseum looks great, with several nods to the old building including a section of the original wooden seats, photographs from old concerts (Beatles!) and the brass deco Nora at the box office of the coliseum ticket windows. I did my best to open all next to a Beatles poster. of the doors, sit as many places as I could – including the ice hockey penalty box and drink out of every water fountain. Speaking of drinking, I had a delicious locally brewed beer from Outliers. It would have been rude to not test the beer lines after all of the Spencer and Schaun’s hard work, although I think they were pretending like they didn’t know me when I walked down the runway like I’d just been crowned Miss Indiana State Fair. For the record, that was pre-beer sampling. The Coliseum Concert Series at the Indiana State Fair has been announced: -Lynyrd Skynyrd with special guests Jamey Johnson and Drake White and the Big Fire - July 31 at 7:30; $26, $36 and $60.50 -Robin Thicke with special guest Estelle - Aug. 1 at 8 p.m.; $35, $45 and $75 -Phillip Phillips - Aug. 5 at 8 p.m.; $25 and $35 -American Idol Live! 2014 Tour – Aug. 6 at 7:30 p.m.; $25, $39.50 and $59.50

Mark Buselli Quintet CD release show Sunday, May 4 The Jazz Kitchen 5377 N. College Ave - 21+, 5:00 – 9:00 PM, $12

Mark Buselli is celebrating the release of his newest album, Untold Stories. He as recorded several records with his orchestra over the last decade, but this is his first with the quintet in a few years. The record has six of his original songs and his take on Duke Ellington’s “Angelica.” I especially loved the song, “Claude” a tribute to the late Claude Sifferlen, Mark’s long-time collaborator and Indianapolis jazz piano legend. The record features Mark playing trumpet, saxophonist Danny Walsh, pianist Steve Allee, bassist Jeremy and drummer Steve Houghton. I have to share this review of the album by Chris Spector, Midwest Records: The unique thing this trumpeter brings to the bandstand is that he sounds like he could have been a student of Miles but he isn’t trying to ape Miles. What a cool fine line to be able to tread. One of those cats with a day job as an educator that doesn’t let the classroom interfere with his ability to swing, this is a sweet, straight ahead listening date that knows you want to groove even if you are sitting down. Well played throughout, this well decorated cat within the halls of academe is well deserving of some more love from the real world. Time to show this cat what Valentine’s Day feels like. I need to start writing jazz reviews so I can throw around descriptions like “cats” and “ape” and “groove.”

The background of The Gazette:

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. I am currently the organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s and 1940’s. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRMHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the six Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other five districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/ recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

CLUE: P equals N

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Let’s learn a whole new technique! We will put a 5 in the easy puzzle in the center section. First we will use the left section of the middle row that contains 1-2-3-4-8 for help. The 5 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the space to the left of the 3-8 in the left section. The 5 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the spaces above and below the 2 in the left section. This leaves two possible spaces for the 5 to go in the left section, the two spaces to the right of the 2. We can use this information to eliminate the three spaces in the middle row in the center section! The 5 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the three spaces on the left edge of the center section. The 5 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the three spaces in the center column of the center section. The 5 in the right section of the middle row eliminates the three top squares on the center section. The only space left is the lower right corner square of the center section. You have now learned another technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Enjoy three courses for $1995 (Entrée only, $14.95)

First Course (Petit Plats): • CWB SALAD choice of dressing • CHICKEN PATE pink sea salt, warm roll, sour pickles • GRILLED VEGETABLE SKEWERS goddess dressing

I’ve been doing some “spring cleaning” of my own when it comes to the wine cellar. Often times we forget about bottles or worry too much about “waiting till the right time” to open and enjoy. I am still more of a wine drinker rather than a wine collector but even I forget about some of the bottled goodness gathering dust in my basement. Or maybe I am just an expert at ignoring the dust. Last week I had the chance to share a number of bottles with friends, both old and new. The wine AND the friends. It was a perfect pairing. Here are a handful of the favorites.

Second Course (Entrées): (Select one) • BISTRO STEAK 6 oz. choice Angus, potatoes & fresh veggies • CHEESE RAVIOLI dried tomato cream sauce & garlic toast • TILAPIA blackened, fresh lemon, wild rice & fresh veggies • TARRAGON CHICKEN carrot soufflé & fresh veggies Third Course (Desserts): (Select one) • CHEESECAKE with butter caramel or chocolate sauce • BOURBON BROWNIE SUNDAE ice cream & chocolate sauce

2009 Dry Creek Vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County–An earthy, dry red that has aged gracefully. Still offering splendid notes of black cherry, milk chocolate and black berry. Full rich finish.

Reservations can be made in person at Corner Wine Bar, or by calling 255-5159.

2010 Dry Creek Vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County–Another well made wine that continues to offer full on pleasure in the glass. Delightfully chewy, rustic tannins were still full of life. Bold but integrated notes of black cherry, plum, black pepper brought empty glasses to all. 2013 Los Rocas Garnacha, Spain–I love Spanish wines and this one is another affordable, available bottle to share. Charmingly spicy notes of cranberry, plum, currant on the nose and the palate. Rich yet refreshing. Perfect red for backyard BBQ. @cornerwinebar

Barefoot “Refresh” Summer Red–Chill it and swill it! Barefoot continues to make quality wine at bargain prices. You can find it everywhere and its a screw cap.

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith

I don’t know about you, but I am confused. I recently read that HopCat, Indy’s biggest beer bar (130 taps) will be at 6280 College Avenue, on the ground floor of the Broad Ripple Parking Garage and Shoppes. Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t the garage sold to us on the premise that there was so much nightlife parking from the already existing bar traffic that additional parking was needed? Then after the garage was a signed deal, complete with tax incentives, Kilroy’s was brought in and now HopCat’s in the garage building itself. So if we had an overflow need for parking that required the garage we now add two very large establishments that would put us right back to the parking situation before it was built. From observation it doesn’t appear that the garage has helped bring more business to the area and fill vacancies. For example, the southeast College corner where Barley Island once was still remains vacant and certainly no longer for the lack of parking. Firehouse Subs had a brief run in the shop space below the garage and pulled out. That retail space has not been a hot commodity and has been mostly vacant for this past introductory year. As a retailer for many years, with shops in two trendy areas (Broad Ripple and Mass Ave.), I sometimes wonder where the retail is going to come from that the developers and planners tell us will come if they build it. It isn’t always so. In the 800 block of Mass Ave., across from my store, a building was razed and a new four story apartment building with retail below was built. It started leasing more than two years ago. The apartments were a hit and fully leased immediately, however, the retail leasing, not so much. The rent was really high and nothing leased. Then deals were made and rents lowered. They scored with Yats, their first retail tenant. Yats had lost their lease a few blocks away on Mass Ave where they had been for eleven years, due to the property owner wanting to make a bar out of their space. So Yats moved in and a few months later two other businesses followed. Fifty percent is still vacant with for lease signs in the window. When these buildings are designed and presented to us by the zoning board and the city council, they are sold to us with all the benefits they will bring. We are told that if we give tax abatements and TIFs it will offer incentive to developers to improve our area. If the projects sit idle for years with no rent money coming in and the bank still needs monthly payments, something isn’t working. What confuses me is, if deals have to be cut and rents lowered how does the project remain sustainable after we the taxpayers have approved the building based on the dollars projected at planning? I ask this because there is still much discussion on the table about the projected Whole Foods development. I am still perplexed as to why they want to open a second location just two miles from their other established store. Is there something they aren’t telling us? Will they close the Nora store and leave a vacancy in that location? Change is good and new development necessary but do we always believe what we are told or do we proceed with caution especially when it involves taxpayer dollars and not just private money? Recently I got an email blast from Midtown Indianapolis, Inc. urging us to show support for the TIF Bond hearing, to ensure that it passes by contacting our city councilors showing this is a desired development. The hearing has been scheduled for Monday, May 19th, at 5:30 p.m. at the City County Council Building, Room 260. By all means, if you feel strongly about this in either direction, be heard. There’s a saying……. “Be careful what you wish for – you might get it.” We got a garage that had to be filled with a bar instead of shops that we had hoped for that would not have consumed so much of the needed parking for the village.

Finish Boston Strong As I approached the last few days before returning to run the Boston Marathon after last year’s tragedy, I prepared myself for it to be a very emotional and potentially somber event. I was anticipating some tears, and obvious sadness in remembrance of those who died and those seriously injured. And I welcomed those possibilities with open arms; hoping the sharing of feelings would be healing for most people affected. While on the plane heading into Beantown, I sat next to a 40-year-old woman who had been trying to qualify for years; AND she was a bone marrow cancer survivor; AND Ft. Wayne’s Woman Of The Year due to the fundraising efforts she gave to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She was an inspiring woman. And that’s where my Boston Marathon journey began this year. I was excited to have my husband join me for his first time in this city, as I knew he would love it. I have always told him about the culture of Boston, but it’s hard to understand it exactly until you experience it for yourself. Bostonians are the most proud, loyal and patriotic people I have ever met. They LOVE their city and are so happy (not annoyed like some other city’s locals) that you come to visit. It is clear given the random race shirts, running shoes, etc. who is running the marathon and I had at least a dozen of people stop me on the street to say “Good luck!” or “My, I could never do that…go get em!” It’s as if the Boston Tourism Department planted these people all over the city to make you feel welcome, although they didn’t. ;) They just love their city with a passion (and their Red Sox clothing). The day of the race approached and here come the nerves AND the emotion. It was hard to believe it had already been a year since I was picking up my gear bag at the finish when the bombs exploded and I hadn’t been reunited with my sister who had also ran. A swarm of feelings came over me as I headed onto the bus toward the start line in Hopkinton Mass. “Here goes.” I thought. Next thing you know I met a gal from Michigan and another from Utah and we chat the entire time about our hobbies, jobs and lives. One of them actually used to live in Carmel…small world! Once at the pre-start location, runners are waiting to start, sleeping in the grass, drinking coffee, and waiting in endless porto-potty lines. Before you know it, my “wave” was called to the start line and we all walked down the tiny road to the famous start line. This was my first year without my sister (although she was there to spectate) so I was a lot more “alone” as I waited to start which wasn’t a bad thing; just new for me. The gun sounded and we were off! This is a beast of a course and if you don’t respect it and run it smart it can chew you up and spit you out. The down hills and up hills are timed “just right” to destroy your legs so hopefully the previous months of hill training would pay off for me. And to boot, the field is extremely fast so starting out too quickly is easy to do. As I ran along the course in the first six miles, I noticed all of the familiar sights from the previous three times I have ran. People on their lawns grilling out, drinking beer, cheering on runners, and celebrating their Patriots Day holiday just as they always have. And here come the crazy Wellesley College girls!!! These ladies are screaming like crazy begging sweaty runners for kisses, which many, many receive. Although I almost get tripped or knocked over by male runners scooting to the sidelines to get a smooch, it is probably my favorite mile (halfway!); and I forgive the guys… probably on their bucket list. And I plan to give a kiss next year. Why not?! Shortly after that I saw Team Hoyt, the father and son duo (son Rick has cerebral palsy and his father Dick pushes him in a wheelchair). This year is their last of 37 consecutive Boston Marathons; last year was supposed to be their last but they had to come back to finish what they started! I also passed by several other runners that were running on crutches; WOW! And other paraplegic runners. I saw people running who ran last year that had family members who were spectating that lost legs. The crowds, which are already amazing, were going NUTS this year. At mile 18-21 you run up 4 large hills; the last of which is the infamous Heartbreak Hill. Crowds cheer with vigor to get you up it, the street is covered in sidewalk chalk encouraging you to stay strong, kids pass out popsicles and orange slices and you just feel such a surge of energy with their support. When I took that last left turn onto Boylston Street less than a block from the finish line I turn my head to see a small, simple, yet beautiful and touching memorial to

It is the sign for Indy Upcycle at 6354 Guilford Ave. [E4 on map].

the four people killed in the bombings. Crossing the finish line, volunteers scramble to give you medals, food and clap and congratulate you while you walk gimpy to find your family. That moment was surreal of course due to the fact I was in the same spot just a year ago; all of the emotions running to the finish line etc. And Okay I was WAYYYYYY sore! On the subway heading back to the hotel we met a sweet older couple; Lifetime Bostonians. They were heading home from their day of spectating and congratulated me on finishing. My sister asked them who they were there to cheer on. They looked at her a bit perplexed and answered “Everyone. Every year.” That about sums it up. My point in telling you these little snapshots of my experience is that this tragedy, while never forgotten, will NEVER bring down the spirit of Boston, the marathon and Patriots Day. Not fear or anything else can keep people away from coming out to run or cheer. The spotlight wasn’t on sadness as I originally suspected; rather on happiness, positivity and perseverance. Yes, it was emotional as I expected but on strength, joy and love. You cannot mess with Boston and the amazing resilience of Bostonians. Boston STRONG!  Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Wildflowers Don’t Care Where They Bloom Spring is springing and a sure sign is the greening of my yard. The days above 50º entice me to explore my yard after the long winter. Yes, I look for the wildflowers that peek through the ivy. I adore the warm spring days that bring forth wildflowers: spring beauties, trillium, hepatica, mayapple, Dutchman breeches, and Celanese poppies. Under green leaves I can spots violets — purple, white, yellow, and variegated. The hellebores has been blooming since early February and welcome the wildflower company. I hope you take time to look for our natural wildflowers. Broad Ripple Park (especially in the woods or by the river), Holliday and Marrott Parks, and Butler gardens and woods will surprise the daily walker with blooms to be identified and savored. There are several resources that can help you if you want to know what you are seeing. First, there are assorted field guides to wildflowers that you can check out of the library or purchase for your home reference shelf. There are apps for android and iOS with the most reputable being the Audubon Wildflower digital guide. Identifying fragile spring wildflowers no longer has to involve picking flowers and bringing them home for identification. Exploring the woods for blossoms has met the digital age. Another amazing digital asset in this area is a gem, Friesner Herbarium. Butler University Libraries and the Friesner Herbarium launched a website showcasing the Herbariurm Specimen Digital Image Collection of over 19,600 dried, pressed, and preserved plants specimens. Check it out at www.butler.edu/herbarium. This project celebrates the life of Dr. Ray Friesner who was a botany professor for more than 30 years at our neighboring university. The collection features plants collected throughout Indiana including ferns, orchids, and sunflowers along with bean buttercup, figwort, mint mustard, rose, lily, pink, carrot, and forgetme-not families. IUPUI University Library created the digital images of the Friesner Herbarium Collection. This site also has an inventory of Marion County wildflower locations and a Spring Wildflower Checklist. You may also want to take advantage of wildflower walks at Holliday Park (www.hollidaypark.org). Did you know that Butler University offers a Campus Tree Walk? A map and identification of the trees you will see on the campus can be found at www.butler.edu/herbarium/indexwalk.htm. This site even has photos and an online lesson about how to identify trees. Indiana Native Plants and Wildflowers Society (www.inpaws.org) promotes the appreciation, preservation, conservation, utilization, and scientific study of the flora native to Indiana. Its mission is to educate the public about the value, beauty, diversity, and environmental importance of indigenous vegetation. This advocacy group has guarded our native resources and encourages every citizen of Indiana to enjoy our landscape and plant native plants in their yards. Finally, one other announcement fits with this column. There is a movement afoot to create a special garden in Broad Ripple. The Bill Brink Memorial Garden will be a landscaped linear oasis honoring the memory of the life-long Broad Ripple resident and friend who passed away in 2011. It will reflect Bill’s passion for the great outdoors, native Indiana plants, wildlife, art, and Broad Ripple Village. There will be a variety of plant habitats including a rain garden, forest wildflowers, and a prairie as well as benches, public art, and lighting. Bill was a special nature friend of mine going back to the days he was an original photographer at Eagle Creek. If you want to find out more about this Bill Brink project whether to donate or volunteer, go to http://brva.org/2013/11/contribute-to-the-bill-brink-memorial-garden/. The joy of looking for wildflowers of spring is a wonder. The plants can peek out through your yard, sidewalks, along roads and farms, and unlikely places in and around the Village. They are hardy and self sustaining. Their blooms welcome us to a new season of rebirth and hope of bountiful growth. Step out and see what you find along the paths of Broad Ripple. Savor their beauty, share your finds with others, and rejoice that the winter is over! “When a flower grows wild, it can always survive Wildflowers don’t care where they grow” - Dolly Parton Brandt Carter, artist, herbalist, and naturalist, owns Backyard Birds at 2374 E. 54th Street.

Indianapolis Foundation Awards BRAP $17,500 The Indianapolis Foundation, a Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF) affiliate, awarded the BRVA’s 501c3 arm, Broad Ripple Alliance for Progress (BRAP), $17,500 to be invested in projects along the Art2Art Trail. The Art2Art Trail, a concept developed out of the Envision Broad Ripple process, connects the Indianapolis Art Center to the Indianapolis Museum of Art using the Monon Trail and Central Canal Towpath. Signage for the Art2Art Trail was installed in Fall 2013. The Indianapolis Foundation grant required a one-to-one match from donors in the community, which was exceeded enthusiastically with the help of both local businesses and residents. BRAP/BRVA will use the total $35,000 funds towards aesthetic improvements along the Cornell Ave. corridor, Art2Art phase 1. Some of the projects include the stabilization of the Faces sculpture, support for the installation of the Bill Brink Me m o r i a l Garden, and future art installations. We’d like to thank the donors who helped us meet the challenge grant, the Indianapolis Foundation for continuing to support placemaking projects in Broad Ripple, and Tom Healy, BRVA board member and BRAP President, for providing leadership.
