First Cherry in bloom at BBG

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.

Yaay! Spring is here! Pretty soon the whole borough will be bursting with greenery - I can't wait to get that first whiff of fresh spring air.
