Brooklyn Botanical in a Chilly Spring Season

This year has been very strange with weather. We had a warm spat early on in April, which urged some of the cherry blossoms to bloom, but then a cold week sent them right back into hiding. So we did an estimate of when to go to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to see some. It was a beautiful day with the tail end of tulips, and the beginnings of lilacs for all to enjoy.
