I've been following the Brooklyn Botanic Garden blossom status map closely and bang! over the weekend the mall of cherry blossom trees finally bloomed.
And just in time. This weekend at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the celebration of the cherry blossoms: Sakura Matsuri. There are over 50 scheduled events. It gets crowded for sure, but is fun, the food is great and the blossoms are breathtaking. My long time favorite is the Soh Daiko japanese drumming group. My husband and I even took a drumming lesson - I mean who wouldn't want to bang on those drums at least once in their lives!!??
