Cherry Blossoms in Brooklyn April 2 - May 1

claireplymouth z6b coastal MAApril 4, 2011

I know it's not quite New England but Brooklyn Botanic Garden is within reach of many New Englanders (as well as quasi or honorary New Englanders). There's a CherryWatch Blossom Status Map that shows some cherries are already blooming, and it's fun to see this map develop. Of course, it's even more fun to actually go there.

I'm going!!! Have wanted to go for years and it was on my 'bucket' list - as was the Philly Flower Show. Via an out-of-the-blue friendly finger of fate, last month someone asked me if I wanted to go on a bus trip to the BBC, May 1st. No thinking: Answer, YES! If it's on THE list, do not hestitate. Good of you to post this link, Claire. (doing the happy dance)

Then you'll be there for the two day Sakura Matsuri Festival. Check the schedule; lots to do and see. The BBG has good food too.

I just checked the Cherry Blossom Status Map and an outrageous number of trees are at peak blossom. I hope Jane is going tomorrow armed with her camera.
