Every April the city explodes with the vibrant colors and sounds of Spring. And each year I seem to completely miss the much anticipated bloom of cherry blossoms at the Botanical Garden. I either get there too early, or just a bit too late to catch the spectacular show. But not this year! I just discovered that the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens site has a cherry tree watch! It's basically a garden map that is updated daily to chronicle the garden's bloom status. Genius.
I will no doubt be checking the page daily until the exact moment that I can stroll down the Cherry Esplanade and shuffle through the petals like the kid in the photo above.
