It’s really the most amazing thing. Wasn’t it just 2 weeks ago that I posted photos of my birthday garden picnic at that mansion? Remember the trees being all bare? But that’s what happens when it’s Spring. Just when you’ve given up on seeing anything green, it happens, literally overnight. The 70 degree weather that we’ve been having all week doesn’t hurt either. Suddenly we’re in sandals and dresses and no jackets and there were even a few declarations of “it’s too hot!”. All this color is really dazzling and a little disorienting after being used to winter for so long.

But more visions of pink blossoms soon – we’re headed to the Cherry Blossom Festivals tomorrow at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Have a great springy weekend!

    I will be playing taiko at noon on mainstage at the BBG sakura matsuri tomorrow! 🙂 Say hello if you get a chance. Will be behind stage once it’s over. Mark will recognize me, I hope.

    I cannot believe either! All of the sudden flowers popped. I am looking forward to hearing what you saw at the festival. I did not know Brooklyn has enough cherry blossom trees.

    I bought my house last November so I’ve been waiting for MONTHS to see what kind of tree is planted in my front yard. Everything around me bloomed… my little tree… NADA.

    I was JUST about to pull it out of the ground and get a new tree from Home Depot, when TADA, it exploded with brilliant pink blossoms. YAY! Gotta love God’s sense of humor!
