Sakura Matsuri Festival - Botanical Garden

on Gallery, originally uploaded by Jon Cronin.

Today was the last day of the Sakura Matsuri. If you didn't get a chance to see the Japanese Festival of Light at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, you should put it on you calendar for next year. The garden was packed and the cherries were starting to bloom. It is probably better to see the cherries in full bloom next week-end -but- you will have missed the folk dances, samari swords and numerous other performances. I am glad to have made it this year and I look forward to you comments about the event? The tulips where amazing!
