We made it to Spring! The cherry blossoms have arrived … for the most part! Since I went last year while the esplanade in Brooklyn Botanical was in full bloom, this year I opted to get shots of the Japanese Garden in full bloom. Nature decided to be quite fickle this year and though, ‘Ok, I’ll give you sunshine on the day you choose to go, but I will also make it 40 degrees outside.’ So I bundled up and headed out to Brooklyn. The date was decided on due to using the gardens wonderful online site that has a cherry blossom watch page. It showed approximately when the blossoms were in full bloom. Since I wanted to avoid crowds, and the gardens are not open on Mondays, my choice was made so I wouldn’t miss them. See what you think!
Next week: The rest of the gardens (and a few more shots in the Japanese Garden) which didn’t involve cherry blossoms.
