Another beautiful garden is the Magnolia Garden. Just exquisite. And they have yellow magnolias which I've never seen before.

Sakura Matsuri festival at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. I'd been told by friends it was not to be missed and I'm glad we went; it was beautiful. The Japanese Garden's were in full bloom, but I think the esplanade where there are a lot of cherry blossom trees were already spent. Weather was gorgeous, crowds were out in force, and there was a lovely atmosphere in the air. We wandered about with Oscar, listened to traditional Japanese drumming, took in the fantastical outfits of the cosplay kids (some kinda lame, but that made it all the more amusing), and the beautiful Geisha ladies were fab. Next year I'll be more appropriately dressed! I'll be keeping a look out for a kimono :)
