Spring in New York is a veritable color riot with magnolias, tulips,
narcissus, hyacinth, forsythia and cherry blossoms in bloom around the city. Last week at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Magnolia Plaza was
filled with star and saucer magnolias, white and yellow narcissus were in
abundance alongside the Lotus Pond and cherry blossoms throughout
the Garden were in various stages of blooming. I can’t wait to return during the beautiful weather this weekend for the tulips that were just starting to open.
