Brooklyn Botanic Garden

On Saturday, we took ourselves over to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to experience the joy of such a gorgeous Spring day ... and did it ever exceed our expectations! We only covered a portion of the Garden's immense landscape, but were fortunate to see several highlights.

We started off on our way through the Osborne Garden:

To the Lilac Collection:

Off to the Cherry Esplanade:

Then to the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden:

From there, we stopped by the Shakespeare Garden and then to the Fragrance Garden:

Then to the Magnolia Plaza:

And couldn't help but stop and photograph the incredible tulips!

Truly a magnificent afternoon - one I highly recommend! Make sure not to miss this weekend's annual 2012 Sakura Matsuri: a weekend celebrating traditional and contemporary Japanese culture.

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is open Tuesday-Friday, 8AM-6PM, Saturday & Sunday from 10AM-6PM. Admission is Free for Members, $10 for Adults, $5 for Seniors and Students, and Free for Children under 12. For more information, please visit the Garden's official website.
