Botanic Garden Blooms

The unusually warm weather has pushed Cherry blossoms ahead of their normal schedule in the nation's capital. The National Park Service has even changed Washington DC's blossom peak twice this week, to nearly a month early. Robin and I walked over to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on Sunday to see if NYC's blooms were also early. Okame cherry seemed to be the only cherry trees in bloom, however, magnolias appeared to be close to peak. I overhead one person say that a garden employee told them that the blooms were about 3 weeks ahead of schedule, so get over there before it's too late! Here's a link to the BBG's blossom status map.
