Brooklyn Botanic Garden ADMIN April 12, 2011
This group is for cherry blossom photos taken at Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Please add your other BBG photos to, and cherry photos from other locations to other groups. Thanks!

Group Description

The blossoming of the cherry trees at Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a New York City rite of spring. Hanami is the Japanese cultural tradition of viewing and cherishing each moment of the cherry blossom season.

Join Brooklyn Botanic Garden in celebrating Hanami this year by adding your cherry blossom pictures to our group!

Any photos you have taken of flowering cherries at BBG are welcome for submission--from any time in the blooming cycle. Hanami is the official cherry blossom viewing season here at the Garden (this year it's from April 5 to May 11), but if you've got shots of early- or late-bloomers, we'd love to see them, too!

Please tag your photos with "Hanami" and "BBG" or "Brooklyn Botanic Garden."

And make sure to come to the Garden this year to take more pictures of the cherries. Some trees are already on their way to peak bloom, and others are yet to start. Plan your visit with CherryWatch, BBG's online status map of the blooms. We update it each weekday during Hanami!
