Cherry blossoms are now at its peak here in the city, and like thousands of other New Yorkers we flocked to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens to revel underneath fluffy pink and white blossoms. It was sandal weather too, and the girls and I walked a million miles over the weekend. Along our walks, they like to collect clusters of blossoms that have fallen off trees and bring them home to place in shallow bowls of water.

 

The blossoms will probably be gone in another week or two. After that, summer isn’t far behind. 2 more months of school left in the year. Time doesn’t stop for anyone, does it?

    Stunning photos as always! I can’t believe Spring is basically in full bloom and Summer is just around the corner. Time goes by way too fast

    Breathtaking! 🙂 Spring is here and Summer is around the corner :). It is such a shame there I did not see such a beauty in our city (Pilsen, Czech Rep).

    Beautiful! Love this time of year with the Cherry Blossoms. Got some in DC earlier in the month and it def adds to the hopefulness of the season.

    Gorgeous photos! I was able to get to the festival on Saturday, but my little digicam doesn’t do the beautiful blossoms justice (http://redpoppypinkpeony.blogspot.com/2013/04/a-cherry-tree-grows-in-brooklyn.html).
