Early Spring Splendor at the BBG

Last Sunday Ed and I enjoyed another jaunt at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. While much is still in post winter slumber, here and there early spring blossoms – such as daffodils, early cherry, magnolias, and apricot – are writing the first act to a floral extravaganza for which the crocuses had been a mere prelude.

The BBG decided to restrict their daffodils not just to Daffodil Hill – which we will get to soon – but planted a welcoming brigade of them right by the Eastern Parkway entrance.

The main cherry trees at the Esplanade still have a month or so to go before they are in full bloom. (See some previous posts on that here and here.)

But some cherry tree variations at the outskirts of the Esplanade start blossoming before the majority.

The small yellow flowers among the daffodils on Daffodil Hill are Colchian Barrenwort, or so the sign said.

The first in a magnificent variety of magnolia trees:

The apricot tree

Blossoms at the Japanese Pond.

The Brooklyn Museum is right next to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
