Cherry Blossom Festival,Sakura Matsuri,at Brooklyn Botanical Garden

A beautiful sunny Saturday

so we set out for Brooklyn along with large numbers of others lured by the thoughts of

cherry blossom

and people dressed up in costumes

all playing under the shadowy trees.

People of all ages....families

lots of elegant young ladies

all greeting the season.

A reflection - but really too crowded to reflect much

but fun to look for fishes

and floating blossoms

and moments of peace......


  1. Oh that cherry blossom Elizabeth - no such thing here yet - I am so envious.

  2. I just came from running and I had so mich fun, running home through the streets and all trees had such great blossoms. It looks so romantic!
    Wonderful pics. What a funny girl with the sheep bag :-)
    Love, Ines

  3. Lovely photos.
    Son living in Japan has been sending me photos of the trees in bloom.
    Nothing better then sitting under them and have a meal.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Elizabeth, you've brought back some beautiful Brooklyn memories of visiting this festival.

    In another month or so, the amazing rose garden should be in full performance. The scent and!


  5. That blossom! What a contrast to even a month ago. It's sunny here too at last....

  6. No cherry blossoms here, too hot/cold, but it looks very pretty there.

  7. So much colour and delight found in this visit. The pond of Koi with the cherry blossom debris has a certain magic to it, I find. Very Zen in the middle of the surrounding zany.

  8. Fun party, fun weather. Well worth a trip across town. Those blossoming trees are fantastic.


I look forward to hearing from you!
