(From the Nov-Dec '06 UGJ) — Michael Warren Thomas’s “First in Bloom” contest has definitely expanded since the days when all you had to look for was the first snowdrop. For 2007 there are eight categories, from bulbs to perennials to vines, each with a prize of dinner for two. The first person to call Thomas after midnight on January 1, 2007, at 585/328-8300, with the first flowers blooming outdoors (not just in bud) in each of the categories, will win a dinner for two gift certificate. If you do happen to find the first snowdrop, your reward is dinner for two at Max of Eastman Place—pretty fancy.
Naturally Green airs Saturday mornings at 9 on WYSL am, 1040 in the Rochester area. Listen online and get full details about the contest at savorlife.com.
