Welcome, Spring!

This is one of my favorite trees in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. It hasn’t bloomed yet, but it has a carpet of purple crocus at its base to remind us that spring is only a few days away.

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is one of the great treasures of New York City. If you’ve never been there, I recommend you visit sometime between now and the end of April, when new sprouts come up daily and the place is alive with new life and renewed spirit.Favorite Tree
