Last week, my neighbor’s daughter Hannah was on Spring Break from school. Friday was a gorgeous day, and a trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens was planned. Elaine and I were invited to go along!
It is Cherry Blossom Festival right now. I must admit, after seeing the cherry trees in full bloom in Washington, D.C., I was slightly unimpressed by the cherry trees at the garden. The tulips, however were delightfully arrayed in bright, beautiful colors, and even Elaine enjoyed the “pretty flowers.”
There was also a section of lilac bushes. Though they were not completely blooming, the fragrance was overwhelming…and it is one of my favorites!
