The Cherry Blossoms of Brooklyn Botanical

Every year I keep a close eye on the cherry blossom app for Brooklyn Botanical. This year was quite messy as it was still cold out in April. Then the blossoms started and so did the rain. This completely thwarted the garden’s cherry blossom festival. I finally went the following week after three straight days of rain, which was when the Japanese Garden was finishing its blossoming and the esplanade was finally starting. I have tons of shots of the Japanese Garden in full bloom and this trip was for specific images, although I wandered a lot and got a lot more than planned.
