A few snaps of the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I went on Tuesday afternoon to take advantage of the free admission and the weather could not have been nicer, but very hot! In fact half of the blossoms have already past peak, the lake is usually surrounded by cherry blossoms during the festival which takes place this weekend. I'm a new Brooklynite and it was a really nice way to really see the neighborhoods by walking a lot, I walked from Fort Greene via Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights to the Botanic Garden, sounds like a lot but it took only 30 minutes. Oh yes, hubbie and I moved to Brooklyn from Manhattan in February and we LOVE Brooklyn! The apartment, on the other hand, is a different story.
