Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden



It is a beautiful spring day in New York today and the perfect day to visit the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. There are few days that not perfect days to visit one of the most beautiful places in New York City. Besides the daily serene beauty the extraordinary array of cherry trees is in blossom and this is as lovely a sight as a day in Kyoto. I took these pictures on a visit last fall, and I am reminded that I am overdue for a return trip, especially to see the cherry trees. It is a very easy trip from Manhattan and a quick walk from the subway. Tuesdays are free admission days for everyone and Fridays are free admission for seniors.

The Japanese Pond and Garden is not the only attraction at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. My other favorites include the rose garden, the lily pool terrace and the extraordinary magnolias.

I'm once again joining the Blogging from A to Z Challenge and my friends at Pink Saturday. Our next stop in New York City is a trip back to Manhattan's Meatpacking neighborhood. Please be part of the fun.

As ever, thanks for visiting. To all who celebrate Easter, a bright and blessed day!

Thank you for the photo tour of the garden. My son visits Brooklyn often (living in NJ now). I will recommend this to him to visit.
