hooray for Brooklyn!!

Well, my Mom left early, early this morning and we all had such a nice visit! I'm itching to show you some photos from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden!! oh. my. goshhhhhh. What an amazing and beautiful place! If you are anywhere near Brooklyn...you must go. Go now! The museum is right next door...Prospect Park is just around the corner...FABULOUS. It was absolutely frigid Saturday. Overcast, misty rain...chiiiiillllly! But, we didn't let any of that damper our spirits! We wrapped ourselves in scarves and blankets and hats and gloves and enjoyed every moment. Take a peek...

jake and henry in the Shakespeare Garden

look at these sweet purples and pinks!!

wouldn't you love to wake up to a view like this every morning!!?

my Mom (Hi Mom!) and little henry...and a peek at the tropical gardens

the cherry blooms!!! there were HUNDREDS of these trees. I could never capture how it was to see these in person. Walking beneath the canopy of these trees was like walking in a fairy world! When you looked up...there were billions of blooms surrounding you and tiny petals falling all around you. Spectacular!!

look at the colors!! and my very favorite hue of hydrangeas!

sweet little white flowers...

and the peonies were as big as my head!!! I want a peony garden!!!

I'm off to bed for now...but I'm looking forward to catching up with all of you soon and sharing some goodies I'm the new proud owner of:) See ya tomorrow! xoxo...jenn

Okay, there have been a lot of people snapping pictures of their gardens and showing off various flower types....but, I must say - these pictures WERE just GORGEOUS!! WOW!!! Those cherry blossoms were amazing – can’t imagine what it must have been like to have been there in person to see them! How fun!! It must have been like a fairy world!! I agree..just from the photos! Oh – how I wish seasons could just be frozen…so that every day you could enjoy that glory!!
Thanks for sharing!

Bonjour Jenn! Oh, visits to the Botanical Garden in Montreal is a must every year for us. I love gardening and certain combinations of colors give me such a feel good warmth inside...Your pictures are beautiful, your mom adorable and your little men just precious! It is still very early for us in Southern Quebec, the apples trees will bloom this weekend, like they do every year for Mother's Day! Perfect timing! Have a great weekend! LuLu xxx
