I saw my first cherry in bloom at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden yesterday while on my way to History of Gardens and Landscape Design class. It's outside the main cherry collection of the Cherry Blossom Status Map. It's located on the Washington Avenue side of the landmarked Laboratory and Administration building, across the street from Crown Street. [GMAP]
There's also a flowering apricot (Prunus mume) in bloom at the same location. The cherry is the tree on the left, the apricot is on the right.
