Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

Last weekend I went to the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. I went to the Orchid Show a few weeks ago and really enjoyed taking photographs of the flowers so I figured the Cherry Festival would provide the same opportunity. It was supposed to be a rainy day but mother nature decided to give us all a break, casting only a few brief showers during the morning. Aside from celebrating the full bloom of the cherry trees, the BBG had a ton of events, performances and activities. I saw a bonsai exhibit, an exhibit on Ikebana, and was entertained by all the kids who dressed up as their favorite Manga and Anime characters.

As for the rest of the BBG, I was amazed at how many trees and flowers were in bloom. It seems as though all the foliage was competing for eyes and noses. Check out the pics I took of the cherry trees and other plants that were in bloom.

Enjoy some of these pics from the Cherry Blossom Festival! And for those artists who need some flower or plant reference, feel free to use these images for studies or what have you. The orchid show images are all up for free use, commercial or whatever. If you want to give me credit for something that is great. Or just link to my blog.
