The Japanese have a term for appreciating cherry blossoms, from bud and bloom to the blankets of fallen petals that eventually accumulate: hanami. This cycle will be on full view as the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s approximately 220 cherry trees show off their floral display; you can monitor their progress using the BBG’s online CherryWatch Blossom Status Map. Tours of the collection—one of the largest outside of Japan—as well as of the other Japanese plants on the grounds, will take place at 1pm on Tuesdays and 11am on Saturdays during the show. Through mid-May.
