Blossom snow!!

have you ever been surrounded by so many blossom trees that their branches formed a beautiful roof? i had not, until yesterday! as the wind blew lightly through the trees, pink snow was everywhere.... the cherry blossoms in the brooklyn botanic garden where at their peak so we went to see them... we had been wanting to go to new york since a few weeks, and reading about these blossoms was the nudge we needed to finally really get some bus tickets... we decided to do another 1-day new york trip, like we did in december. at 4.15 the alarm went off, and at 6.15 we were in the chinatown bus to new york! jeeejjj! before 11 we were in the botanic garden, and for whatever reason we did not have to pay the 10 dollar entrance fee... (when we left everyone did have to pay, we were lucky once again). it was soooo beautiful! and there were sooooo many people. and kids. and cameras.... and flowers, ofcourse. it was the perfect place for people watch... and i took a lot of pics..
after that we went to see some other stuff in new york, which i will show you soon, probably! when we got home around 11.30 last night we were too exhausted to do anything and also today will be a pretty slow day... :)

Great you made the trip again in one day, exciting. 4.15...must be horrible, but it was worth it I can see. Beautiful the blossom snow!

and yesterday was a great day to go to NY, it's raining cats and dogs now. I guess you have that too in Boston now? The blossom is beautiful, isn't it. I can't stop making pictures of it :-)

How nice! I was just remembering a blossom storm I experienced in San Francisco some time ago. I decided to walk a labrynth that's at Grace Cathedral and it snowed pink blossoms while I walked. It was truly magical!
