Cherry Blossom Festival! Or Sakura Matsuri, for you Japanese speakers out there. We love this time of year in Brooklyn with all the blossoms blooming, but it’s the festival that we especially look forward to.
It’s held at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, which is a wonderful place to be any time of the year, but is especially nice in the spring. With the cherry blossoms out and the throngs of people . . . it’s great to people watch, stroll, or get into any of the activities that are going on throughout the garden.
We learned to play Go, made some rice shakers and pinwheels, followed the river, ran into some friends and soaked up the lovely weather, which has been much too long in coming.
Success all around.
