Though the Sakura Matsuri cherry blossom festival is still a week and a half away, the blossoms aren’t waiting for anyone. In an article I read today, visitors to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden have been treated to the peak displays of gorgeous pinks and whites for a couple of weeks now, and festival organizers doubt that the window will continue through until the fest.
If you haven’t gotten to the BBG for the display, it sounds like this weekend’s weather promises to be gorgeous. For a guide on where to see the fullest blooms, check out the BBG’s map here, or meet up at 3pm at the Visitors Center for a free guided tour!
