Not an Oil Painting: Flowering Tree in The Rain (All Photos By Gail)

We haven’t had much of a winter in NYC, but that doesn’t mean I’m not looking forward to spring! In fact, the siting of 14th street’s first flowering tree of the season made me think back to  May of 2019, when my pal Jamie and I made plans to attend the annual Cherry Blossom Festival (Sakura Matsuri) at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The fact that it happened to be pouring down rain that day did not dampen our adventurous spirits!

Until this year’s blossoms can be digitally captured for future posts, please enjoy these ten blooms that couldn’t be deterred by the raindrops.

The Yellow Daffodil in all of its variations is possibly the number one flower of spring here in the city, but of course that is open to debate. Happy (almost) spring, everyone!
