I SPY: Cherries on Top

Apr 28, 2016

Are you dying from allergies?  Mine are at their peak right now, and I try not to hang outside too long, otherwise I end up looking like a blowfish!  HA.  But the weather is gorgeous and spring fever is in full bloom, so how can you not resist taking your lunch break outdoors?

But of course, under a Cherry Blossom tree!  I love these trees.  Don't you?  They are flourishing right now in Central Park, and you can spot them miles away.  This is a random solo I found near the street at the 72nd street entrance on Fifth Avenue.

As you venture further into Central Park you will find more Cherry Blossom trees in abundance.  My favorite spots in past years to enjoy the pink grandeur in clusters is at:

- Cherry Hill along 72nd street, west of Bethesda Terrace.
- Bridal path at 90th street, along the west side of the reservoir.
- Sakura Park at 122nd street, between Riverside Drive and Claremont Avenue.

Pump up on the allergy meds and get out there this weekend to enjoy the cherries on top before they all drop.  If a picnic at Central Park sounds too chill for you, then Brooklyn Botanic Garden is celebrating their annual Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival this weekend from Saturday, April 30, 2016 to Sunday, May 1, 2016.  There will be Japanese cultural activities, music, art, and kids activities.      I've never been to the festival, but if you do go tell me how it is!  Enjoy, and don't forget to stop and smell the flowers…ACHOO *sniff* !!!
