Well here we are again signs that we have weathered the winter and without much snow here in Brooklyn, New York. We had a few very cold days but that was fine for me since there was no snow. The pandemic still lingers on with signs of improvement but I suspect that we will be having this around for a long time. I got my 2 shots and booster and fortunately with no side effects and no (Covid) positive test. I am still cautious being mindful of where I am and whether I need to wear a mask yes or no.
I decided to visit the botanical garden to see what blooms were out and to take a walk and enjoy the open environment. Surprisingly there was a lot of people this early in the season and it appeared a large group of Japanese guests.
Well as you move around there are signs of spring; budding trees, daffodils and not to mention cherry blossoms. The cherry esplanade is a section of the garden that comes alive in the springtime with cherry blossoms of all sorts and color but is not yet in full bloom so I will be going back when it is. When the esplanade is in full bloom it is so beautiful and since it is short lived, timing is crucial. This is one of the main displays I like to see annually but have missed for the last two years.
As i walked a half a block from home I ran into this beauty.
