Flashback Adventures: Sakura Matsuri

I’ve been so ready for spring to hit after enduring the extra snowy winter in NYC this year.  My favorite part of spring is enjoying all of the gorgeous cherry blossom trees lining the streets.  The cotton candy pink petals against the clear blue sky is my favorite color combination in nature.  I’ve been daydreaming about being able to attend Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden again this year and since I never posted my photos from last year I thought now would be a good time to admire them until the weather outside matches the weather in these photos! (Sidenote, I can’t wait until my hair is that long again!)

For those that don’t know, Sakura Matsuri is the national cherry blossom festival which takes place in DC and commemorates when Mayor Yukio Ozaki gifted Japanese cherry trees to the United States in 1912.  The first festival was held in 1935 in Washington DC and now there are several different states which host their own version of Sakura Matsuri.  The Sakura Matsuri in Brooklyn has been occurring since 1981.

    I’ve never been to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, but clearly, I must remedy that! These photos are so dang lovely, and I do love cherry blossoms. Plus, a Shakespeare-themed garden!!

  4. What a beautiful place! It reminds me of parts of Regents park in London. Your dress is as pretty as the flowers here.
