Cherry Watch

As the winter months wither away, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is flourishing in the annual month-long Cherry Tree celebration. Beginning this weekend, BBG’s 220-plus cherry trees will be flowering into breathtaking blooms. Along with the blossoming buds, the Garden will be showing its appreciation to the Asian ancestry of the Cherry tree with Japanese calligraphy lessons, traditional tea ceremonies, and Asian-inspired gifts at the Hanami gift shop.
