Spring in NYC: Cherry Blossom Trees

We moved to New York from San Francisco a few months ago, so this is my first real spring in 6 years. I’m loving all the trees and flowers that have started to bloom, and I’ve been stalking cherry blossom trees throughout the city of New York.

We even had one bloom right outside our door!

It only lasted about a week, but every time I left my apartment someone was taking a picture.

I had visions of visiting Washington, D.C., for the National Cherry Blossom Festival, but unfortunately that’s not happening. Maybe next year!

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden has hundreds of it’s own cherry blossom trees, so of course we had to visit.

We even saw some pretty tulips!

I’ve also spied cherry blossom trees in Central Park:

The pretty pink and white blooms are just so springy and sweet.
