Cherry Blossom Festival at Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

The annual Sakura Matsuri, or Cherry Blossom Festival, took place at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens recently and my friends and I went to enjoy the pink blossoms and picnic on the Cherry Esplanade! Also known as the 'Cherry Walk' we were sitting among hundreds of other park goers enjoying the musical entertainment up on stage and the very pricey bento boxes of sushi, vegetables and chicken teriyaki.

It was very crowded but it made for some interesting photos with all of the fluffy cherry blossoms and swarms of families and their kids.

After leaving the Festival grounds, I went into Shakespeare's Garden where I saw some Bleeding Hearts!
