Spring is here! I love seeing the first signs in flowers and the change in light . Time to start thinking about the garden, cleaning off the winter and making way for new life or life again. Start planning days to your local botanical gardens and parks. Look at this link to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to see what is in bloom when, or check out your local botanical gardens. Cherry blossom festivals are just weeks away. I hear the magnolia at the Brooklyn Botanical is ready to burst and when it does that is such an intoxicating walk under those fragrant blossoms. One deep breath and your whole body relaxes A little treat of photos of crocus from Hampton Court Palace Gardens, daffodils and iris ( and great shadows) from Central Park . So much more ahead, enjoy!
