HOUSTON, TX - Buffalo Bayou Park got a burst of color on Saturday when the Urban Yarnage group of knitters and crocheters "yarn bombed" the railings of Allen Parkway.

"Yarn bomb is temporarily wrapping any object to alter it's appearance," Urban Yarnage founder Mary Goldsby said.

The group normally undergoes one big project a year.  For this year's installation, members decorated the railing with the phrase "Buffalo Bayou's Back!"

"We've incorporated a lot of the elements you see on the Buffalo Bayou," Goldsby said.  "We have a lot grasses, leaves, birds, flowers, bees, rabbits, turtles-all kinds of elements to create a scene."

The 100-foot-long installation is set to remain up near Taft Street for two to three weeks.
