Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

Puffs of Cherry Blossoms-Clouds in the Sky

Puffs of Cherry Blossoms-Clouds in the Sky

Continuing our  flower viewing, we went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens this Saturday. These gardens are a great alternative ( for people  closer to NYC) to the long drive to D.C. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom, so finding a parking stop on a weekend was not easy here either, but easier than it was in D.C.

The Japanese garden is complete with  a little shrine and a pond shaped like the Japanese character for heart. There are plenty of different varieties of cherry trees to enjoy.

In addition to the cherry blossoms, daffodils dance on daffodil hill.

Walk a little further and see the Magnolia blooms. Get married.
