Brookspring: Scenes from a Beautiful Day

Fifth Avenue Brooklyn

We were out and about yesterday on a glorious Spring day in Park Slope and at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, while our Correspondent Anna Lewis was at the Opening Day festivities in Propsect Park. We can report that Fifth Avenue is starting to bloom (above) and that the magnolias at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and a few early blooming cherry trees are looking spectacular. Meanwhile, Anna reports that "Opening Day at Prospect Park on Saturday brought the annual Little League Baseball Parade, plenty of unexpected sunshine and dozens of volunteers from around the city to help spruce up the park for its busy spring season." GL loves spring.

We must have just missed each other. I was there most of the day on Saturday. BBG is approaching its Spring peak.

The Magnolias will start to fade soon, but the Cherries and bulbs will pick up the slack.
